The Tangled Policymaking Chimera of Baizou is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Premier Fukushima Sonoko with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.255 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wakuna. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Baizoan economy, worth 316 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,277 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Premier Fukushima Sonoko is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence, snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase Premier Fukushima Sonoko's majority, and the nation is regarded as a paragon of democracy. 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 18,576th in the world and 1st in Baizou Jima for Smartest Citizens, with 65.3 quips per hour.
