State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,757 breads, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every week is blindness awareness week, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Basic Empire With Bread Slices's national animal is the loaf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Basic Empire With Bread Slices is ranked 9,399th in the world and 435th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 84.38 Quips Per Hour.
