The People's Republic of Bakastan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cirno and Osaka with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, hatred of cheese, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.404 billion Bakas are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bakaville. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Bakastandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,373 trillion baka-yens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 74,623 baka-yens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sea side cafes are required by law to close during summer, the nation leads Osakaland in per capita stalking, it is common to see Maxémon Trainer listed on Bakastandian resumés, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime is totally unknown. Bakastan's national animal is the horsedeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Baka worship.

Bakastan is ranked 11,714th in the world and 11th in Osakaland for Most Influential, scoring 4,429 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
