The Rogue Nation of Boricuastan is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 22.715 billion Boricuastanis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 82.2%.

The large but sluggish Boricuastani economy, worth 735 trillion soberanoes 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 32,388 soberanoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, closed universities are currently being converted into MacDonald's restaurants, and the government seizes all major gold finds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boricuastan's national animal is the coqui, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Boricuastan is ranked 177,922nd in the world and 97th in International Democratic Union for Highest Average Incomes, with 32,388.24 Standard Monetary Units.
