The Grand Duchy of Bapaving is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tupou I with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.15 billion Bapavingians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaihitahi. The average income tax rate is 70.2%.

The all-consuming Bapavingian economy, worth 182 trillion specks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is 84,826 specks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes, restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Bapaving, policy reversals are more often graceful demi-détournés than u-turns, and Tupou I's Twitcher account is once again only used for bragging about the government's accomplishments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 160,371st in the world and 7th in Selene for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.05 Crimes Per Hour.
