The Republic of Boggovia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Bob Boggis with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.021 billion Boggovians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boggoville. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Boggovian economy, worth a remarkable 3,176 trillion Bobs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 198,285 Bobs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, the nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boggovia's national animal is the Vole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Boggovia is ranked 165,595th in the world and 9,647th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -45.16 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
