The Borderlands of Special Aromas is a huge, safe nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 376 million Bwois 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White Breadcrumbs. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Special Aromasian economy, worth 12.4 trillion Hot and Spicy Meats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 33,085 Hot and Spicy Meats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and the government is spending billions of Hot and Spicy Meats on a fancy space probe to find a planet that may not even exist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Special Aromas's national animal is the Jerk Chicken.

Special Aromas is ranked 149,268th in the world and 150th in Texas for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 9,230.74 Standard Monetary Units.
