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 public floggings, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 12.056 billion Big Bay Islanders are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Island City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Big Bay Islandic economy, worth 168 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 14,001 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People take government jobs for the frequent flier miles, Big Bay Island's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, and 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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, and its national religion is a major religion.

Big Bay Island is ranked 294th in Yggdrasil and 115,417th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -12 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
