The Kingdom of Boerengat is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kitty with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, frequent executions, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.048 billion Boerengatians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antwaarpen. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Boerengatian economy, worth a remarkable 3,312 trillion Franks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 206,419 Franks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 863,089 per year while the poor average 32,178, a ratio of 26.8 to 1.

Organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, the only crimes that get investigated are doughnut heists, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, and decreased demand for toilets is saving the prison service a lot of money. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Boerengat's national animal is the Leeuw, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Snowballing.

Boerengat is ranked 19,451st in the world and 16th in Vlaanderen for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
