The Democratic States of Bortheria is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 463 million Bortherians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education, Defense, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 4.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Bortherian economy, worth 47.5 trillion bones a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 102,494 bones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low, the government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, and grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Bortheria's national animal is the owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Bortheria is ranked 2,352nd in the world and 43rd in 10000 Islands for Rudest Citizens, with 205.26 Insults Per Minute.
