The Dexterian Republic of Bawkie is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Surfas Yuihisadaf with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, lack of airports, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.708 billion Bawkiens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mezqurbha Dzifatfatbawqur. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Bawkien economy, worth a remarkable 1,950 trillion Bawks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 253,097 Bawks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, the legislature keeps promising "more study" of corruption allegations against the parliamentary whip system, and suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bawkie's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dexterism.

Bawkie is ranked 1,194th in the world and 42nd in the South Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.78 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
