The Queen's State of Ile Bourbon is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 20.297 billion Ile Bourbonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals keep a keen eye out for any attempt to organize such a thing, and ruthlessly crush it. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Income tax is unheard of.

The strong Ile Bourbonian economy, worth 836 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 41,200 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 399,469 per year while the poor average 204, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

Voting is voluntary and Ile Bourbon has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ile Bourbon's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Ile Bourbon is ranked 105,482nd in the world and 4th in Western Sahara for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -3.16 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
