The Queen's State of Bonaventure 22 is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 23.804 billion Bonaventure 22ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 9.1%.

The strong Bonaventure 22ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,055 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 44,357 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Euthanasia is illegal, gambling is outlawed, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and Bonaventure 22 has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bonaventure 22's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Bonaventure 22 is ranked 85,695th in the world and 5th in Mongolia for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
