The Constituional Queendom of Baikanor is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Tsantia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.91 billion Baikanorians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lapizseht. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Baikanorian economy, worth 473 trillion Baikanorian Marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 162,741 Baikanorian Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Appliance stores are finding spy cameras embedded in their unboxed merchandise, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Baikanorian weed picker are way up, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams. Crime is totally unknown. Baikanor's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Baikanor is ranked 918th in the world and 15th in Balder for Most Secular, with 99.14 Atheism Rate.
