The Democratic Republic of Boldia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Stephen Isakov with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.574 billion Boldians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Barcelona. The average income tax rate is 55.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Boldian economy, worth a remarkable 1,245 trillion thalers a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,636 thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, smoking is banned in public areas, and the Boldia Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Boldia's national animal is the mermaid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.

Boldia is ranked 197,619th in the world and 978th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.63 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
