The Most Serene Republic of Bonroute is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Ron Ishida with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.776 billion Bonroutiens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bahnstadt. The average income tax rate is 18.9%.

The Bonroutien economy, worth 325 trillion Pebbles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 56,426 Pebbles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, and the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bonroute's national animal is the buzzard, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Zen.

Bonroute is ranked 29,951st in the world and 12th in Taijitu for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,003.39 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
