The Classification of Baconbacon123 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Bacon with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, enslaved workforce, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 12.973 billion Bacon are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Crisp. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Bacon economy, worth a remarkable 4,007 trillion Bacon Bucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 308,940 Bacon Bucks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,016,465 per year while the poor average 70,361, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

High school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, there's a bustling black market for vegetables, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Baconbacon123's national animal is the Well-Crisped Strip, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Emperor Bacon.

Baconbacon123 is ranked 169,489th in the world and 250th in New Western Empire for Most Cultured, scoring 17 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
