The National Catholic Kingdom of Bombastion is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Giuseppe II with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.227 billion Bombastonians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romito. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Bombastonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,145 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 frequent. Average income is an impressive 183,949 Knickerbockers, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,352,332 per year while the poor average 7,626, a ratio of 177 to 1.

Bombastonian tourists are banned from many nations due to their tendency to randomly explode, the national anthem's only purpose is to inflate King Giuseppe II's ever-expanding ego, the police double as repo men, and giant no-kill traps baited with Bapst Red Ribbon and vintage bicycles have been popping up in back alleys nationwide. 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.

Bombastion is ranked 7,926th in the world and 122nd in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 183,949.52 Standard Monetary Units.
