The Democratic States of Bonjoura is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The people with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.793 billion Bonjouriii 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 large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erinaceinae. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bonjouranese economy, worth 779 trillion Louises a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 162,564 Louises, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Corporate innovation has effectively ended since ideas can no longer be owned, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles'. Crime is totally unknown. Bonjoura's national animal is the Pink Yelling Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Harmony.

Bonjoura is ranked 45,929th in the world and 2,324th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 25.07 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
