The United States of Bakestate is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lady Cheesecake with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.168 billion Bakestateans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cookacupcake. The average income tax rate is 54.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Bakestatean economy, worth 140 trillion cookies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 120,477 cookies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace, asking 'a penny for your thoughts?' draws law enforcement response, parents dread their examinations more than their children, and farmers in arid regions are puzzled with government directions to plant rice this year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bakestate's national animal is the firefly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
