The Holy Empire of Bonobiana is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grande Primata with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.236 billion Bonobistas 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Primata. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bonobiano economy, worth 139 trillion Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 112,965 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Military spending is on the increase, children are raised bilingual from an early age, student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, and mass shootings have become the new normal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bonobiana's national animal is the Vampire, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Temple of SEX.

Bonobiana is ranked 257,733rd in the world and 11,128th in the South Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.86 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
