The Songhai Republic of Bomoko is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Hassan Conté with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 9.444 billion Songhese are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bamako. The average income tax rate is 90.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Songhese economy, worth a remarkable 1,035 trillion Songhai Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 109,682 Songhai Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Children's books regularly feature formerly distressed damsels suing their princes, a three-year-old has been selected to run the civil service, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and people's charity begins and ends at home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bomoko's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Islam.

Bomoko is ranked 4,271st in the world and 20th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 25 Valid Endorsements.
