The Commonwealth of Bacon-Descartes-Kant-Godel is a large, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 80 million Bacon-Descartes-Kant-Godelians 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 55.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Bacon-Descartes-Kant-Godelian economy, worth 2.25 trillion Ingots a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is 28,071 Ingots, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mollycoddled youths run the country, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Monkey-Eating Eagles and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, much of Bacon-Descartes-Kant-Godel's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bacon-Descartes-Kant-Godel's national animal is the Monkey-Eating Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bacon-Descartes-Kant-Godel is ranked 52,700th in the world and 2,289th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 78.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
