The Most Serene Republic of Baked America is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mary Jane with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, ritual sacrifices, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.248 billion Baked Americans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potville. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Baked American economy, worth a remarkable 2,107 trillion Cookies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 187,404 Cookies, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

There is a thriving underground gay scene, a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, it is a silent spring in Baked America, and posters of politicians in sensual poses can be found on the walls of teenagers' rooms. 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 1,350th in the world and 52nd in Osiris for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 69.76 Whatever.
