The Most Serene Republic of Bogski is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.474 billion Bogskians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bogskia. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Bogskian economy, worth 45.0 trillion Bops a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, extremely specialized black market in Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,513 Bops, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, Bogskian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, military information leaks are **REDACTED** by **REDACTED** in **REDACTED**, and psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bogski's national animal is the Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bogski is ranked 233,495th in the world and 7,643rd in the South Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -11.4 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
