The Technocracy of The Bonum commune Institute is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Doctor Gray with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.346 billion Subjects are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novum City. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Bonum commune Institutean economy, worth a remarkable 8,578 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 642,784 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, and poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Bonum commune Institute's national animal is the Ant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Bonum commune Institute is ranked 59th in the world and 2nd in the West Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 143,748.58 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
