|Animal||Pink Yelling Hedgehog|
The Democratic States of Bonjoura is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The people with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.106 billion Bonjouriii are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erinaceinae. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Bonjouranese economy, worth a remarkable 1,269 trillion Louises a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,609 Louises, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Erinaceinae Times is sold out. Crime is totally unknown. Bonjoura's national animal is the Pink Yelling Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Harmony.
