|Leader||King Giuseppe II|
The National Catholic Kingdom of Bombastion is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Giuseppe II with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.978 billion Bombastonians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romito. The average income tax rate is 8.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Bombastonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,565 trillion Knickerbockers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 196,276 Knickerbockers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.
King Giuseppe II's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will, economists claim no news is good news, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Bombastion's national animal is the Turkeyhawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.
