The Republic of Boldia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Stephen Isakov with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.118 billion Boldians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Barcelona. The average income tax rate is 50.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Boldian economy, worth a remarkable 1,216 trillion thalers a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,446 thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?", popular candidates who don't suffer last-second political scandals tend to get fished out of the New Barcelona River, ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips, and citizens select which government department gets their income tax thalers each year. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Boldia's national animal is the mermaid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.

Boldia is ranked 39,426th in the world and 402nd in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 4.03 Bank.
