The Free Falling Nation of Boris Dragosani is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alvin Goremunk with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and feral children. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 9.796 billion Dragosanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seville. The average income tax rate is 84.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dragosanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,175 trillion carbontaxes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 119,990 carbontaxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, Alvin Goremunk's opponents have adopted dogs to chase away the mailman, eight-year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Boris Dragosani's national animal is the chipmunk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Environmentalism.

Boris Dragosani is ranked 245,475th in the world and 426th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -67.29 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
