The Tangled Policymaking Chimera of Baizou is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Premier Fukushima Sonoko with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.467 billion Baizoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wakuna. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Baizoan economy, worth 103 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,262 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, and banana distribution among collective farm workers is an important topic in public discourse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baizou's national animal is the white elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mahōzōhō and Christianity and Buddhism.

Baizou is ranked 228,760th in the world and 3rd in Baizou Jima for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -11.31 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
