The Commonwealth of Greate Boston is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by General Nathan Hart with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.938 billion Wastelanders 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctuary Hills. The average income tax rate is 26.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wastelander economy, worth 414 trillion Bottle caps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 140,916 Bottle caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, the government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, and the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Wastelander democracy. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Greate Boston's national animal is the Radstag, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of Atom.

Greate Boston is ranked 153,708th in the world and 61st in The Fallout Wasteland for Longest Average Lifespans, with 63.53 Years.
