The Kingdom of Bacon Land is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Bacon Lord with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.785 billion Bacon Slaves are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baconshire. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bacon Slave economy, worth 264 trillion Bacon Slabs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 148,257 Bacon Slabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

First-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bacon Land's national animal is the Bacon Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is PIG.

Bacon Land is ranked 70,183rd in the world and 2,753rd in The East Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,453.96 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
