The Republic of Bontimagenshya is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.437 billion Bontimagenshyans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bontimagenshyan economy, worth a remarkable 2,142 trillion lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 205,277 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, and the nation has always been at war with Moltovea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bontimagenshya's national animal is the porpoise, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Bontimagenshya is ranked 53,998th in the world and 1,222nd in the West Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 13.55 Obesity Rate.
