The Kingdom of Fish Bois is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Foye with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, feral children, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.971 billion Fish Bois 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Boi's City. The average income tax rate is 61.3%.

The powerhouse Fish Boisian economy, worth 250 trillion Spoingoes 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. 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 an impressive 126,847 Spoingoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The health budget has been diverted into prolonging Foye's life, embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fish Bois's national animal is the Fsh, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Foyism.

Fish Bois is ranked 143,178th in the world and 2nd in The Region of WESC for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 25.82 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
