The Lucky holy golden of Bormiar is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kyo with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 4.619 billion Bormiarian have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlanta. The average income tax rate is 59.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bormiarian economy, worth 448 trillion Gold Bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Retail, Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 97,185 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Autocrats are persona non grata, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bormiar's national animal is the ghost, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kyorgism.

Bormiar is ranked 70,413th in the world and 1st in Bormiar for Most Primitive, scoring 14.64 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
