|Leader||King Giuseppe II|
The National Catholic Kingdom of Bombastion is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Giuseppe II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.768 billion Bombastonians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romito. The average income tax rate is 8.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Bombastonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,506 trillion Knickerbockers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 193,959 Knickerbockers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.
King Giuseppe II can't hear a thing when the unwashed masses throw rocks at the new state limousine, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and international trade can be a pain to deal with. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Bombastion's national animal is the Turkeyhawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.
