Regional Influence: Sprat

Location: The North Pacific



Population447 million


The Jingoistic States of Bopolisc is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 447 million Bopoliscians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Bopoliscian economy, worth 17.9 trillion Bolsics a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,027 Bolsics, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, and group hugs break out during floor votes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bopolisc's national animal is the Pala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bopolisc is ranked 19,165th in the world and 1,065th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 75.75 Years.
