The Almighty Federation of Bodstia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Dignitary Batukhan Lazlos I with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.232 billion Bodstians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kirz. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Bodstian economy, worth 392 trillion Kirkas 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 an impressive 121,467 Kirkas, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Bodstia's radio stations, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bodstia's national animal is the Bison, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Leaderism.

Bodstia is ranked 163,465th in the world and 22nd in Communist Cartel for Most Cultured, scoring 53 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
