The United Socialist States of Bonum Locum is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the Prime Bureaucrat with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.218 billion citizens hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sparkletopia. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Bonum Locumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,456 trillion equality units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 201,034 equality units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing, replacement organs are grown in vats, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, and dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia. Crime is totally unknown. Bonum Locum's national animal is the equality unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bonum Locum is ranked 206,677th in the world and 99th in Gay for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.51 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
