The Imperial Glorious Empire of Baggieland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Alswitch with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.234 billion Baggies are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 2.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Baggielandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,284 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 277,480 boings, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,023,720 per year while the poor average 53,072, a ratio of 19.3 to 1.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites, and it's never "just a game" with Baggielandian sports fans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Baggieland's national animal is the throstle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Baggieland is ranked 172,968th in the world and 2nd in B71 for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -11.58 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
