The Holy Empire of Bodhisva is a huge, genial nation, notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 320 million Bodhisvans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theosia. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Bodhisvan economy, worth 28.1 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 87,966 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Bodhisvans can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, and foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Theosia Elephants' triumph against long odds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bodhisva's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bodhisva is ranked 203,870th in the world and 9,804th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -4.47 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
