The Meritocracy of Bolslania is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Wilhelm Oberst with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 2.884 billion Bolslanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keygate. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bolslanian economy, worth 353 trillion Talons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,635 Talons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, Bolslania is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, going on a diet invalidates your passport, and on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bolslania's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bolslania is ranked 18,663rd in the world and 1,009th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 9.15 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
