The All for the love of you of David Bowman is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, devout population of 18.487 billion David Bowmanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 50.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming David Bowmanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,404 trillion $$s a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 75,968 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Leader spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, the new one $$ coin also makes a handy throwing-star, and town welcome signs list corporate sponsors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. David Bowman's national animal is the Dolly Varden, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

David Bowman is ranked 58,680th in the world and 15th in BLITZKRIEG for Largest Governments, scoring 17.29 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
