The Imperial Glorious Empire of Baggieland is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Alswitch with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.913 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 Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hawthorn. The average income tax rate is 2.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Baggielandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,786 trillion boings a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 258,435 boings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, and the nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells. 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 80,452nd in the world and 2nd in B71 for Healthiest Citizens, with 1 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
