The People's Socialist Republic of Bolshikstan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Constantine Rizzo with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and anti-smoking policies. The democratic, cheerful population of 11.97 billion Bolshikstanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Bolshikstanian economy, worth 807 trillion bolishtars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 67,470 bolishtars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and Formula One cars in Bolshikstan boast 56 miles per gallon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bolshikstan's national animal is the killer koala bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bolshikstan is ranked 166,843rd in the world and 6,249th in The East Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -17.28 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
