The Free Land of William Boyd is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Hopalong with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 16.787 billion William Boydians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Public Transport, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roundup. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.8%.

The all-consuming William Boydian economy, worth a remarkable 1,957 trillion Nickels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 116,597 Nickels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 418,531 per year while the poor average 23,276, a ratio of 18.0 to 1.

No suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines, eminent domain has been abolished, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of William Boyd's radio stations, and soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. William Boyd's national animal is the Prairie Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

William Boyd is ranked 181,419th in the world and 3rd in Cascadia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.83 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
