The Not So Isolated Islands of Boring Paradise is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Malik IV with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 21.807 billion Paradisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paradisian economy, worth a remarkable 2,768 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 126,949 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 152,799th in the world and 61st in Esportiva for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -12.3 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
