The Democratic Oligarchy of The Bohin is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.376 billion Bohinians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sugmei City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.6%.

The very strong Bohi economy, worth 521 trillion Bols a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 55,613 Bols, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Movie references are legally admissible in court, government officials across The Bohin are being "encouraged" to adopt Pigs to set an example for the populace, pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, and retail stores are known for creating their own oddly-similar holidays in the months preceding any major festivity. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Bohin's national animal is the Pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Bohin is ranked 154,288th in the world and 61st in Sunalaya for Most Cultured, scoring 61 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
