The Dictatorship of BoxcarJim is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, prohibition of alcohol, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.882 billion BoxcarJimians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient BoxcarJimian economy, worth 684 trillion bills a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 99,457 bills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason, a baby's first breath is also a baby's first felony, soldiers are equipped with multi-million bill battlesuits, and hammer and sickle-wielding space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BoxcarJim's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

BoxcarJim is ranked 193,216th in the world and 5,132nd in the West Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -8.22 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
