Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federation of Bosiu is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Akula Drakon with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.001 billion Bosiuans 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 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 1.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bosiuan economy, worth a remarkable 3,170 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 226,454 Illicks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, the population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, and biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar. 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 174,948th in the world and 228th in Texas for Most Avoided, scoring 0.38 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
