The Rogue State of Bonnie Blue Republic is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by James LaRouge with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.107 billion Bonnie Blues are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gemstone Island. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bonnie Blue Republician economy, worth a remarkable 1,600 trillion gold pieces 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 an amazing 225,220 gold pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos, the fate of the world literally rests on James LaRouge's fingers, colonial subjects have Bonnie Blue Republician culture shoved down their throats, and military chiefs are predicting extra funding in this year's budget. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bonnie Blue Republic's national animal is the copperhead, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Conmunism.

Bonnie Blue Republic is ranked 203,626th in the world and 213th in Lands End for Safest, scoring 6.27 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
