The Republic of Boffzen Countinet is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Armin Melms with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.159 billion Boffzeners are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boffzen. The average income tax rate is 70.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Boffzener economy, worth 362 trillion minineuer euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 167,807 minineuer euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Boffzen spends billions upgrading public transport, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, twins are held culpable for the actions of their siblings, and whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boffzen Countinet's national animal is the white Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Boffzen Countinet is ranked 135,023rd in the world and 6,306th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 21.38 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
