The Kingdom of Boston Castle is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by HM Paul IX with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.769 billion Castellians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nansemond. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Boston Castlean economy, worth 635 trillion Great Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 168,550 Great Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, recreational drug businesses are regularly pruned if they grow above the maximum legal size, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime is totally unknown. Boston Castle's national animal is the Newfoundland Retriever, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

Boston Castle is ranked 271,503rd in the world and 3rd in Maastricht for Most Patriotic, with 0.4 flags saluted per person per day.
