The Glorious Communist Utopia of Bonnie Blue Republic is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by James LaRouge with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.998 billion Bonnie Blues 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 government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gemstone Island. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bonnie Blue Republician economy, worth a remarkable 1,890 trillion gold pieces 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 an amazing 210,086 gold pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos, the fate of the world literally rests on James LaRouge's fingers, colonial subjects have Bonnie Blue Republician culture shoved down their throats, and military chiefs are predicting extra funding in this year's budget. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bonnie Blue Republic's national animal is the copperhead, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Conmunism.

Bonnie Blue Republic is ranked 17,130th in the world and 12th in Lands End for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,792.31 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
