The Imperial Federation of Bolkenia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Elize De Chanterelle et Jean-Marc Fidèle with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.371 billion Bolkenians 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 is primarily concerned with Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nouvelle Yvengard. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bolkenian economy, worth 572 trillion mogs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 169,770 mogs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime is totally unknown. Bolkenia's national animal is the orcas, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Volgaulism.

Bolkenia is ranked 28,540th in the world and 32nd in The Socialist Syndicalist Union for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 878.42 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
