The Armed Republic of Bone Fort is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the collective will of the populace with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 15.743 billion inhabitants of Bone Fort 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 medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Education and Welfare also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bone Fort Proper. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The an inhabitant of Bone Fort economy, worth a remarkable 2,086 trillion slip of paper that denotes values a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,517 slip of paper that denotes values, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

90% of active duty BFAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, and global anti-terrorist organisations strongly suspect Bone Fort of supplying extremist groups. Crime is totally unknown. Bone Fort's national animal is the eldritch abomination, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is dependent on the citizen in question.

Bone Fort is ranked 166,609th in the world and 4,959th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -23.02 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
