The People's Republic of Bahk is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rupert Steinbahk with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 11.479 billion enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Travincal. The average income tax rate is 72%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.
Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, anti-government web sites are springing up, photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Rupert Steinbahk, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bahk's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Gold Piece.
