The United States of Boltang is a massive, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.095 billion Boltangians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 20.3%.

The all-consuming Boltangian economy, worth 104 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 95,758 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

A death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, Leader has more friends than ever before, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and artists are pillars of society. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boltang's national animal is the wookies, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Boltang is ranked 145,387th in the world and 8,028th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring zero on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
