The Imperial Union of Boico is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord President Henrietta Rearden with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 16.419 billion Boicoas enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny government prioritizes Defense, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Creo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Boicoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,704 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 164,740 Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 515,809 per year while the poor average 40,342, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

The army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, the BBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, and prices fluctuate manically for no fathomable reason. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Boico's national animal is the Black Jay, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Boico is ranked 149,792nd in the world and 5,217th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.4 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
