The Commonwealth of Bostovania is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Old Man with a fair hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.464 billion Bostovanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stone City. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bostovanian economy, worth 453 trillion Daves a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,015 Daves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money grows on trees, companies have begun running campaigns to stop people from remembering their brand name, libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, and the countryside is shrouded by wind farms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bostovania's national animal is the Chihuahua, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is All inclusive.

Bostovania is ranked 128,324th in the world and 235th in Wintreath for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
