The Kingdom of Bothia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Muad'Dib with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.386 billion Bothians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arrakeen. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Bothian economy, worth a remarkable 9,874 trillion Spice Melanges a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Tourism, Cheese Exports, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 686,414 Spice Melanges, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, calisthenics is a well-known tax-dodging technique, and EpiPen sales have skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown. Bothia's national animal is the Seaworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bothia is ranked 95,424th in the world and 5,415th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 848.88 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
