The Freakin' Awesomeness of Bavland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mister Man with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.525 billion Liberals hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jaclon. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Liberal economy, worth 151 trillion Giks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 99,382 Giks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

If foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Bavland, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, and Mister Man is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. Crime is totally unknown. Bavland's national animal is the Squirrel Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bavland is ranked 8,911th in the world and 167th in 10000 Islands for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 6,355.47 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
