The Republic of Baumdahl is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.338 billion Baumdahlians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Baumdahlian economy, worth a remarkable 1,984 trillion Honors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an amazing 212,502 Honors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, "Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baumdahl's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

Baumdahl is ranked 170,467th in the world and 6,289th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 1.43 Obesity Rate.
