OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Crippling Instability of Bongo Mountain is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Gerhard Popwell with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.575 billion Bongolese are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Popwellopolis. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bongo Mountainian economy, worth 213 trillion Popwell pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 82,977 Popwell pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Twins move across the country to avoid being accused of the other's crimes, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, visitors to Graffiti Warrens National Park are offered a complimentary tetanus vaccination, and the nation wears its high incidence of chromosomal diseases as a badge of pride. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bongo Mountain's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Popwellism.

Bongo Mountain is ranked 230,774th in the world and 10,222nd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 87.49 percentage of bribes refused.
