|Leader||King Giuseppe II|
The National Catholic Kingdom of Bombastion is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by King Giuseppe II with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.006 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 government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romito. The average income tax rate is 14.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Bombastonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,059 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 rampant. Average income is an amazing 205,848 Knickerbockers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.
Whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, euthanasia is illegal, farmers are complaining that the buzzing and the sparks from the nearby MagRail are blighting their crops, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. 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.
