Bova Ptaltand

Population6.512 billion

CapitalBova Plaltand City


The Kingdom of Bova Ptaltand is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Ash with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate population of 6.512 billion Bova Ptaltandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bova Plaltand City. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bova Ptaltandian economy, worth 821 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 126,113 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The comic book series 'Ash and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, and you can get married in sickness and in health but not internationally. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bova Ptaltand's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bova Ptaltand is ranked 194,148th in the world and 6,151st in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -7.95 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
