The Imperial Glorious Empire of Baggieland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Alswitch I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.602 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, moralistic, 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 3.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Baggielandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,726 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 283,990 boings, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 857,096 per year while the poor average 73,313, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

The justice of Baggieland is considered superior to that of other nations, sanitary products are sold in brown paper at hairdressers' salons, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations, and commemoration of the Great B71 War costs almost as much as the war itself. 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 15,089th in the world and 1st in B71 for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 16,856.21 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
