Boston Republic

Population5.322 billion


The Dictatorship of Boston Republic is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, cynical population of 5.322 billion Boston Republicians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.3%.

The Boston Republician economy, worth 222 trillion kronor a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,807 kronor, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, conspiracy theorists allege Boston Republic City's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, and maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boston Republic's national animal is the cobra, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Boston Republic is ranked 133,777th in the world and 1st in The Dictatorial Paradise for Most Extreme, scoring 18.45 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
