The Alfonzian Colony of Boda is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Comrade Alfonzo with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.414 billion Bodans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ferelden. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Bodan economy, worth 338 trillion Darkspawn Kill Points a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 99,280 Darkspawn Kill Points, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 652,603 per year while the poor average 5,890, a ratio of 110 to 1.

Wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, the mentally ill are given high powered automatic weapons for "catharsis therapy", 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail, and inter-species marriages are ignored by the government. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Boda's national animal is the Staggering Griffin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Defenderism.

Boda is ranked 30,985th in the world and 6th in Entropy for Most Armed, with 3.39 Weapons Per Person.
