The Imperial Glorious Empire of Baggieland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Alswitch with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.876 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Baggielandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,500 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 extensive. Average income is an amazing 281,715 boings, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 953,461 per year while the poor average 61,513, a ratio of 15.5 to 1.

Government statistics suggest 115% of the population love Alswitch, prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, apprentice builders get teased for wearing hard hats, and grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, 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 2,379th in the world and 1st in B71 for Highest Average Incomes, with 281,715.38 Standard Monetary Units.
