The Holy Gold Haggs of Bowmanium Commonwealth is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Yzaen Moygszaa-Vyzaer with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and national health service. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 11.516 billion Bowmanians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dodargona. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bowmanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,264 trillion Vistas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,764 Vistas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, the government is spending millions on lawyers' fees trying to get Yzaen Moygszaa-Vyzaer off a murder charge, citizens can't decide whether to be proud or horrified by the country's colonial history, and the only movement outdoors is of ramen-delivery drones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bowmanium Commonwealth's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Bowmanium Commonwealth is ranked 39,650th in the world and 3rd in Northern Hemispheric Entente for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 17,799.57 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
