The Demonic Land of Boris Cult is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lucifer with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.355 billion Borisians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Boris Cultian economy, worth 287 trillion Blessings 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 212,062 Blessings, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad, pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, and pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boris Cult's national animal is the Cow Zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church Of Boris.

Boris Cult is ranked 28,594th in the world and 15th in Isle Of Wooloo Kingdom for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 2,483.56 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
