The Grand Duchy of Bapaving is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Tupou I with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.41 billion Bapavingians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaihitahi. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bapavingian economy, worth 450 trillion specks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,171 specks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visitors to Violet Rock City are stunned to learn that they must memorize the "99 Principles" before entering, tipsy fans frequently invite themselves to the board meetings of sports clubs, many marriages go virtually unconsummated, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Christian Church of the East.

Bapaving is ranked 19,573rd in the world and 32nd in Refugia for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 16,680.12 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
