The Serenity of The Bo Tree is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.068 billion Bo Treeans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Patna. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bo Treean economy, worth 743 trillion figs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Average income is an impressive 105,254 figs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, and war criminals are given full state funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Bo Tree's national animal is the spirits, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Bo Tree is ranked 203,513th in the world and 418th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -24.6 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
