The Commonwealth of Boston and Maine is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 535 million Bostonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boston. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Boston and Mainean economy, worth 22.1 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. Average income is 41,263 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Atheists in the nation feel uneasy living in buildings where they were once vilified, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Chickadeeball fields, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, and the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boston and Maine's national animal is the Chickadee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Boston and Maine is ranked 76,191st in the world and 903rd in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,763.88 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
