The Federation of Bosiu is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Akula Drakon with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.47 billion Bosiuans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sakuru. The average income tax rate is 1.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bosiuan economy, worth a remarkable 3,277 trillion Illicks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 226,501 Illicks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, and a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bosiu's national animal is the Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bosiu is ranked 49,263rd in the world and 1,597th in Lazarus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 68.14 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
