The Matriarchy of Boadiccea is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Booie with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 16.501 billion Boadicceans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hog Mountain. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Boadiccean economy, worth 595 trillion Tacituses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 36,114 Tacituses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All industry is owned and run by the government, the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, and the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Boadiccea's national animal is the Llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Boadiccea is ranked 140,007th in the world and 5,315th in Osiris for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 43,955.22 Standard Monetary Units.
