The Republic of Bouleraux is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jaques Pantaloux with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 7.045 billion Boulerauxians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bouleraux City. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Boulerauxian economy, worth 951 trillion boullions a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 135,104 boullions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, the Violet Mile now refers to the long line-ups that former death row inmates wait in as they transfer to maximum security prisons, and passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bouleraux's national animal is the domesticated duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Boulanism.

Bouleraux is ranked 83,838th in the world and 1,133rd in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 274.9111435012 days.
