The Theocracy of Ghost BC is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 847 million Ghost BCians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Ghost BCian economy, worth 15.8 trillion Souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 18,603 Souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ghost BC's national animal is the Rat.

Ghost BC is ranked 88,383rd in the world and 849th in Artificial Solar System for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 607.83 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
