The Sultanate of Bawland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Sultan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, prohibition of alcohol, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 36.745 billion Bawlanders are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Healthcare, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bawland City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Bawlandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,724 trillion haws a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,366 haws, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

No one is quite sure what many government officials look like, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, protestors are soaking piles of haws in blood to make a point about government incomes, and according to the latest national census as many as two-thirds of the respondents possibly consider 'violet' their favorite color. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Bawland's national animal is the wild booby, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Bawland is ranked 39,468th in the world and 1st in Seven Eleven for Most Pro-Market, scoring 60.11 on the Rand Index.
