The Empire of Bakra is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.789 billion Bakrans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.

The thriving Bakran economy, worth 470 trillion Thalers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 69,333 Thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 245,419 per year while the poor average 14,142, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Elections have been outlawed, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Bakra's national animal is the Fawn, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Bakra is ranked 51,904th in the world and 2,108th in Balder for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
