The Not So Isolated Islands of Boring Paradise is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Malik IV with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.534 billion Paradisians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradisia. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paradisian economy, worth a remarkable 2,413 trillion Borish pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,197 Borish pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government imposed restrictions, crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, and the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boring Paradise's national animal is the Hawka Bear, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Hawkism.

Boring Paradise is ranked 139,478th in the world and 50th in Esportiva for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.82 Crimes Per Hour.
