Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Italian Kingdom of Bostler is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Rick Edwards with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.685 billion Bostlerians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kizer City. The average income tax rate is 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bostlerian economy, worth 214 trillion Shizers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,137 Shizers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, and Bostlerian companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bostler's national animal is the Blue fin Tuna, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

Bostler is ranked 153,395th in the world and 12th in The Parliamentary Union of Nations for Most Avoided, scoring 0.85 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
