The Bouncy Ride of Brokenspokia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Handel Bahze with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 23.919 billion Broes 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 medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Derailleur. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brokenspokian economy, worth a remarkable 3,194 trillion Sprockets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,550 Sprockets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Illegal hunting is rife after veganism was recently made compulsory, the nation leads Forest in per capita stalking, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime is totally unknown. Brokenspokia's national animal is the Smooth-running Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Brokenspokia is ranked 1,381st in the world and 35th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.81 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
