The Most Serene Republic of Bogski is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.231 billion Bogskians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bogskia. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Bogskian economy, worth 38.2 trillion Bops 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 a slick, highly efficient, extremely specialized black market in Trout Farming and Information Technology. 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 31,016 Bops, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Bop treacle machine, solid-gold toilets are Bogskian prisons' least expensive furnishings, the army spends more time producing 'romantic videos' than actually training soldiers, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bogski's national animal is the Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bogski is ranked 103,414th in the world and 3,768th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 66.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
