The Imperial Federation of Bolkenia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Yseltna Dunya with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 2.412 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, although Welfare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yvengard. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bolkenian economy, worth 380 trillion mogs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 157,646 mogs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, getting milk from the local corner store no longer requires donning advanced hiking gear, and factories grind to a halt every time there is an election. 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 Asayanism.

Bolkenia is ranked 130,738th in the world and 43rd in The Socialist Syndicalist Union for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 57.3 Workforce Participation Rate.
