The Incorporated States of Bongo Johnson is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ragnar Smithson with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.606 billion Bongonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Murbley. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Incorporated economy, worth a remarkable 1,478 trillion wongas 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 mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 117,305 wongas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, the nation has dismantled its entire WMD arsenal, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Murbley Kittens' triumph against long odds. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bongo Johnson's national animal is the kitten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bongo Johnson is ranked 4,287th in the world and 5th in Esportiva for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 95.46 Effective Tax Rate.
