The Nationalist State of Bakas-Tavaska is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.753 billion Bakas-Tavaskans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.8%.

The very strong Bakas-Tavaskan economy, worth 143 trillion pounds a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 52,278 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, genetic researchers have been expelled, organ donation is compulsory, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bakas-Tavaska's national animal is the Grey Wolf.

Bakas-Tavaska is ranked 128,135th in the world and 11th in The New Iron Order for Largest Black Market, with 141 billion Standard Monetary Units.
