The Incorporated States of Bongo Johnson is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ragnar Smithson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.95 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, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Murbley. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Incorporated economy, worth a remarkable 1,990 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 117,446 wongas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Populations of two-headed kittens have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, Catherine Gratwick's campaign support is considered seminal, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and Incorporated Standard Vodka is the only drink that bars stock. 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 265,812th in the world and 95th in Esportiva for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -24.4 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
