The Kingdom of Bolrieg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by High King Hegrod Karlolov IX with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, triple-decker prams, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.892 billion Bolriegians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadforad. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Bolriegian economy, worth a remarkable 4,213 trillion wagglefleebes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 326,799 wagglefleebes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,177,533 per year while the poor average 64,854, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

The richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, teachers regularly paddle unruly students, light entertainment isn't dead, and Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Bolrieg as a reminder of their "special relationship". 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. Bolrieg's national animal is the mongfish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bolriegian Orthodoxy.

Bolrieg is ranked 146,443rd in the world and 3rd in The Allied League of Nations for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 7.93 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
