The Chaotic Existence of Bonkingham is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Dan Davidson with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.624 billion Bonkinghamians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Bonkers. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Bonkinghamian economy, worth 185 trillion DogeCoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 114,413 DogeCoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's been a banner year for local vexillology, the nation's museums are real penny-pinchers, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, and burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bonkingham's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bonkingham is ranked 19,697th in the world and 8th in Ridgefield for Most Cultured, scoring 86 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
