The Empire of the Twin Isles of Bostopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Boston with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 31.945 billion Bostopians 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Boston. The average income tax rate is 19.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Bostopian economy, worth a remarkable 6,505 trillion Bostopian Pounds a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 203,644 Bostopian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", and laughter while watching foreign diplomats disrobe tends to make diplomatic talks counterproductive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Bostopia's national animal is the Bostopian Otter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Bostopian Protestantism.

Bostopia is ranked 86,350th in the world and 1st in The Bostopian Empire for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,241.45 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
