The Republic of Bopar is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Daniel De Bisschop with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.28 billion Boparians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mumbai. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Boparian economy, worth 156 trillion kronor 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. 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 47,716 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

People who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, and people are careful to avoid hyperbolising that they'd "rather die" than support Daniel De Bisschop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bopar's national animal is the unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Bopar is ranked 224,011th in the world and 303rd in Oneid for Most Beautiful Environments, with 139.77 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
