The Holy Star of Night of Boston Castle is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lynn Crawford with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, daily referendums, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic population of 876 million Castellians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bradford. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Boston Castlean economy, worth 100 trillion Great Pounds 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 common. Average income is an impressive 114,422 Great Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, Lynn Crawford is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence, and Lynn Crawford's new office is 6 by 8 feet with steel walls and a barred door. Crime is totally unknown. Boston Castle's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Boston Castle is ranked 26,360th in the world and 1,205th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 114,422.23 Standard Monetary Units.
