The Kingdom of Borkiania is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, democratic population of 543 million Borkianians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 19.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Borkianian economy, worth 42.2 trillion Byarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 77,676 Byarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Fruit market traders let their stock spoil rather than reduce their prices at the day's end, the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, the news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears, and pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Borkiania's national animal is the Regal Pomeranian, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Borkiania is ranked 183,575th in the world and 1,708th in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -4.47 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
