The Most Serene Republic of Baked America is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mary Jane with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, ritual sacrifices, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.998 billion Baked Americans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potville. The average income tax rate is 89.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Baked American economy, worth a remarkable 1,206 trillion Cookies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 150,865 Cookies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, many politicians are having to do a hard day's work for the first time in their careers, and you can call your arthritic immigrant neighbour for all your roof-tiling and guttering needs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baked America's national animal is the Baking Cookie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is 420.

Baked America is ranked 136,101st in the world and 5,869th in Osiris for Most Pro-Market, scoring -55.78 on the Rand Index.
