LeaderBob Boggis


The Republic of Boggovia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Bob Boggis with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.502 billion Boggovians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boggoville. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Boggovian economy, worth a remarkable 3,509 trillion Bobs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 200,548 Bobs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, anti-government web sites are springing up, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boggovia's national animal is the Vole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Boggovia is ranked 453rd in the world and 29th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 98.13 on the Human Development Index.
