The Direct Democracy of Boejoe is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Andi Andensten with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.582 billion Boejoeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bolsten. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Boejoean economy, worth a remarkable 1,220 trillion Bolaris a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,008 Bolaris, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 535,006 per year while the poor average 36,135, a ratio of 14.8 to 1.

Playing an online nation simulation game legally obliges you to buy the creator's latest novel, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, and depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years. Crime is totally unknown. Boejoe's national animal is the Boejoean Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Boejoe is ranked 220,385th in the world and 159th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Authoritarian, with 86.55 milliStalins.
