The Konsulati ya Zaire of Bomoko is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gran Konsul Pascal with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 11.479 billion Zaireans 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kinshasa. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zairean economy, worth a remarkable 1,234 trillion CFAS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 107,506 CFAS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 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 Leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Bomoko is ranked 173,814th in the world and 161st in Commonwealth of Liberty for Rudest Citizens, with 30.08 Insults Per Minute.
