The Scientific Empire of Boopkinville is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High King Sam with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory gun ownership, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 4.621 billion weeabooes are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coral city. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Boopkinvillean economy, worth 711 trillion Gold coins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 154,061 Gold coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, East Lebatuckese luxury goods are plundered by the working class of Boopkinville, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Boopkinville's national animal is the Fishy Boopkins, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Memeism.

Boopkinville is ranked 160,761st in the world and 7th in nasunia for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.22 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
