The Grand Duchy of Bapaving is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tupou I with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, lack of airports, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.367 billion Bapavingians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaihitahi. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Bapavingian economy, worth a remarkable 1,015 trillion specks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 189,241 specks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, most citizens in Bapaving are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, and construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bapaving's national animal is the red-footed tortoise, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Christian Church of the East.

Bapaving is ranked 656th in the world and 417th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 226 valid endorsements.
