The Empire of BokChoi is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Justus Merenda II with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.87 billion BokChoians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lightning. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong BokChoian economy, worth 111 trillion Bolts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,624 Bolts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The best fashion comes straight to the high street from sweatshops all across the globe, the true length of the coastline of BokChoi may never be measured, travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, and prison reforms have replaced communal luaus with communal loos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BokChoi's national animal is the Seaturrtle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Golderism.

BokChoi is ranked 222,213th in the world and 280th in The Black Hawks for Most Secular, with 11.41 Atheism Rate.
