The United Economic Republic of Boloshniya is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Adolf Stalin with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.797 billion Boloshniyans 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Armyantinov. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Boloshniyan economy, worth an astonishing 12,463 trillion brubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 483,128 brubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,473,570 per year while the poor average 51,811, a ratio of 47.7 to 1.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, young people devote their entire lives to the faith, freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, and disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown. 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. Boloshniya's national animal is the army ant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Almighty Bruble.

Boloshniya is ranked 268,113th in the world and 6,704th in the Rejected Realms for Smartest Citizens, with 0.17 quips per hour.
