The United States of Boltang is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its smutty television, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.463 billion Boltangians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 21.7%.

The all-consuming Boltangian economy, worth 143 trillion credits 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 Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 98,406 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit, kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, exceptionally talented workers are praised more than Revolutionary heroes, and religious households enthusiastically use whips in private. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boltang's national animal is the wookies, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Boltang is ranked 3,004th in the world and 116th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 7,457.46 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
