The Borderlands of Special Aromas is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 755 million Bwois love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Spirituality, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White Breadcrumbs. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Special Aromasian economy, worth 38.1 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 Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 50,436 Hot and Spicy Meats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, interest in globalism never flags, and teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Special Aromas's national animal is the Jerk Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Special Aromas is ranked 43,500th in the world and 57th in Texas for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,489.77 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
