The Crippling Instability of Bongo Mountain is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gerhard Popwell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.34 billion Bongolese are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Popwellopolis. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Bongo Mountainian economy, worth 189 trillion Popwell pounds 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 dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Tourism. Average income is 81,121 Popwell pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Jumping in puddles after rainstorms has become an indoor activity, foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with Gerhard Popwell, only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise Gerhard Popwell on Bongo Mountain's coulrophobia epidemic, and the nation refuses to provide international aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bongo Mountain's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Popwellism.
