The Commonwealth of Bostovania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Old Man with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.238 billion Bostovanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stone City. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bostovanian economy, worth 631 trillion Daves a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,294 Daves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, the law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, and there have been reports of people marrying housepets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bostovania's national animal is the Chihuahua, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is All inclusive.

Bostovania is ranked 255,880th in the world and 372nd in Wintreath for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -124.82 on the Hayek Index.
