The Beautiful Socialist Paradise of Big Bay Island is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The First Citizen with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service. The compassionate, cynical population of 10.92 billion Big Bay Islanders are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Island City. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, Big Bay Island's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, all recreational drugs are legal, and most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Big Bay Island's national animal is the otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the florin.

Big Bay Island is ranked 9th in Yggdrasil and 2,435th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 49 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
