Bova Ptaltand

Population6.676 billion

CapitalBova Plaltand City


The Kingdom of Bova Ptaltand is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ash with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, state-planned economy, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 6.676 billion Bova Ptaltandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bova Plaltand City. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bova Ptaltandian economy, worth 850 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 127,337 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and the nation excels at displacement. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bova Ptaltand's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bova Ptaltand is ranked 81,024th in the world and 2,927th in the West Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 66.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
