The Imperial Glorious Empire of Baggieland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Alswitch with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.313 billion Baggies are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hawthorn. The average income tax rate is 2.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Baggielandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,275 trillion boings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 321,132 boings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation leads B71 in per capita stalking, the people's love for King Alswitch is little more than self-preservation, tens of thousands of Baggies rock the night away at the annual SuperLob, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Baggieland's national animal is the throstle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Baggieland is ranked 257,316th in the world and 3rd in B71 for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -16.25 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
