The Commonwealth of Baumpatal is a massive, genial nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.897 billion Baum poks enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kelu Thareknala. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Baumpatalian economy, worth 607 trillion Tahuls a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,142 Tahuls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, Leader's new office has a propensity to catch on fire, polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baumpatal's national animal is the Blue Spotted Water Monitor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Baumpatal is ranked 108,029th in the world and 2nd in South pacific gyre for Most Pro-Market, scoring 37.11 on the Rand Index.
