The Starry Night of Boston Castle is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mark Harrod with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.363 billion Castellians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nansemond. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Boston Castlean economy, worth 188 trillion Flashing Diodes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,144 Flashing Diodes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Anniversaries of major historical events pass unnoticed, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", and the environment is gorgeous so long as you're looking up. Crime is totally unknown. Boston Castle's national animal is the Newfoundland Retriever, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Anglicanism.

Boston Castle is ranked 9,188th in the world and 564th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 90.78 on the Human Development Index.
