The Democratic States of Bonjoura is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The people with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.169 billion Bonjouriii are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erinaceinae. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Bonjouranese economy, worth a remarkable 1,280 trillion Louises a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,609 Louises, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Erinaceinae Times is sold out. Crime is totally unknown. Bonjoura's national animal is the Pink Yelling Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Harmony.

Bonjoura is ranked 800th in the world and 25th in Osiris for Least Corrupt Governments, with 97.62 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
