The Overclockers of Bayswater is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Kernel with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 24.561 billion Bayswaterians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Defence and Social Equality are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bayswater City. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Tourism.
Jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Bayswater, the internet has been placed under government control, and citizens select which government department gets their income tax bits each year. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bayswater's national animal is the Cat5, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the bit.
