The Trade Empire Confederacy of Bakivaland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Simon Hans Manchester with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.799 billion Bakivishes 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norrhammar. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bakivish economy, worth 516 trillion Bakivish Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 135,869 Bakivish Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Practising saying 'how now brown cow' is an essential part of holiday planning, disadvantaged youths often commit felonies to enhance their educational prospects, the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, and Bakivaland Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bakivaland's national animal is the Cardinal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Bakivaland is ranked 44,360th in the world and 3rd in The Ocean Defense Pact Frontier for Safest, scoring 104.34 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
