The Howling Republic of Bakavia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 2.336 billion Bakavians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Murkland. The average income tax rate is 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bakav economy, worth 263 trillion Currents a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,784 Currents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Priests are being drafted by the church load, the Murkland XV Regiment (aka "The Goat Starers") have yet to win a battle, the government says that Possession is nine-tenths of the Lore, and six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bakavia's national animal is the Grey wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Bakavia is ranked 49,131st in the world and 110th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Highest Economic Output, with 263 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
