The Incorporated States of Bongo Johnson is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ragnar Smithson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.876 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 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 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Incorporated economy, worth a remarkable 1,239 trillion wongas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,961 wongas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels. 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 164,928th in the world and 68th in Esportiva for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -10.3 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
