In the fractional dimensional space, the ground state properties of the charged-boson fluid are studied in a theory which goes beyond the random phase approximation by including correlations through a static local-field-factor. The structure factor and static local field-factor are obtained in the self-consistent method. Qualitative agreement with the Monte Carlo results on static screening is achieved by imposing self-consistency on the compressibility of the fluid in addition to self-consistency on the structure factor. Using the structure factors obtained in these methods, several properties of the charged boson system such as the energy spectrum of elementary excitations, the pair-correlation function, the ground state energy, the pressure, the chemical potential and the compressibility are obtained in several dimensions including both integer and fractional values. Results obtained in the later method in two and three dimensional systems are close to the Monte Carlo and hypernetted-chain methods. The Wigner crystallisation in the lower dimensional system is found at higher density of bosons. However, it vanishes in any lower dimensional system whose dimension lies below 2.
