The Democratic States of Bonjoura is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The people with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, parental licensing program, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.783 billion Bonjouriii are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erinaceinae. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bonjouranese economy, worth 777 trillion Louises a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 162,595 Louises, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

With increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, every workday begins with group therapy, bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination", and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. Crime is totally unknown. Bonjoura's national animal is the Pink Yelling Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Harmony.

Bonjoura is ranked 170,700th in the world and 9,202nd in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.27 Kickbacks Per Hour.
