FaithEastern Orthodox Christianity

CurrencyBoquense Drachma

The People's Republic of Republic of La Boca is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Acting Prime Minister Facundo Pasarín with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and frequent executions. The compassionate population of 8.945 billion Boquenses 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quilmes. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Boquense economy, worth a remarkable 1,350 trillion Boquense Drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 150,996 Boquense Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, every conceivable scenic location has been completely booked by couples desperate to marry, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic of La Boca's national animal is the cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodox Christianity.

Republic of La Boca is ranked 17,422nd in the world and 3rd in Union of Democrats for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 18,280.64 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
