The Not So Isolated Islands of Boring Paradise is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Malik IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, ubiquitous missile silos, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.025 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 medium-sized, 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 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paradisian economy, worth a remarkable 2,382 trillion Borish pounds a year, is 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 132,178 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 a very well-funded 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 44,739th in the world and 22nd in Esportiva for Most Income Equality, scoring 52.34 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
