The Free Land of William Boyd is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hopalong with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 14.84 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 isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roundup. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.7%.

The all-consuming William Boydian economy, worth a remarkable 1,754 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 118,252 Nickels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 424,472 per year while the poor average 23,606, 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 34,679th in the world and 2nd in Cascadia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,129.82 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
