The All for the love of you of David Bowman is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, avowedly heterosexual populace, and frequent executions. The cynical, devout population of 21.17 billion David Bowmanians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 48.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming David Bowmanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,848 trillion $$s a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,329 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, foreign nationals are widely distrusted, corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, and a recent political debate came to a quick close once the ruling party decreed it was "just plain silly". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. David Bowman's national animal is the Dolly Varden, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

David Bowman is ranked 42,016th in the world and 12th in BLITZKRIEG for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 3,273.76 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
