The Democratic States of Bonjoura is a huge, safe nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 969 million Bonjouriii love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erinaceinae. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Bonjouranese economy, worth 108 trillion Louises a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,442 Louises, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bonjoura's national animal is the Pink Yelling Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
