The Holy Machine of Boston Castle is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Avi Rosenborg with a fair hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.089 billion Castellians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nansemond. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Boston Castlean economy, worth 138 trillion Lines of Code a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,545 Lines of Code, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, discarded pennies litter the streets, and Nansemond's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight. Crime is totally unknown. Boston Castle's national animal is the Canada Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Anglicanism.

Boston Castle is ranked 2,140th in the world and 128th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.2 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
