The Democratic States of Bonjoura is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.221 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, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare 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 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bonjouranese economy, worth 270 trillion Louises a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,857 Louises, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The suicide rate mysteriously skyrockets during census years, holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, and the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace. 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 6,165th in the world and 284th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 139 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
