The United Economic Republic of Boloshniya is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Adolf Stalin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.386 billion Boloshniyans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Armyantinov. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Boloshniyan economy, worth a remarkable 9,366 trillion brubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 437,987 brubles, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,495,856 per year while the poor average 37,334, a ratio of 66.9 to 1.

Cute fluffy little Adolf Stalins are increasingly popular exotic pets, summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, it is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day, and ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Boloshniya's national animal is the army ant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Almighty Bruble.

Boloshniya is ranked 34,726th in the world and 743rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring 68.44 on the Rand Index.
