The United Commonwealth of Bodstia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Premier Batukhan Lazlos with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.408 billion Bodstians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kirz. The average income tax rate is 70.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Bodstian economy, worth 450 trillion Kirkas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 132,194 Kirkas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, ticket touts are blamed for the downfall of communism, "Mad Max: Returning Again to Barrydrome" is this year's unexpected summer blockbuster, and the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bodstia's national animal is the Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Bodstia is ranked 149,361st in the world and 18th in Communist Cartel for Most Pacifist, with 7.27 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
