The United Economic Republic of Boloshniya is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Adolf Stalin with an iron fist, and renowned for its disturbing lack of elderly people, prohibition of alcohol, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.604 billion Boloshniyans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Armyantinov. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Boloshniyan economy, worth an astonishing 10,081 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 446,018 brubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,797,509 per year while the poor average 73,966, a ratio of 24.3 to 1.

Boloshniyan companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', it's entirely possible foreign diplomats misheard when Boloshniya offered the words "peace be upon you", and industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out. 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 241,765th in the world and 7,055th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring -68.34 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
