The Anarchy of Bayanelokavi is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, digital currency, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.718 billion Bayanelokavians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Bayanelokavian economy, worth a remarkable 2,940 trillion Barters a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 380,980 Barters, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,289,423 per year while the poor average 83,188, a ratio of 15.5 to 1.

Many suspect the government "doth protest too much" with their curiously specific denials of conspiracy theories, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, it is said that a Bayanelokavian woman's work is never done, and the recently liberated free press cautiously uses compliment sandwiches to cushion its criticisms of Leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bayanelokavi's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Bayanelokavi is ranked 30,205th in the world and 14th in Hoshizora for Longest Average Lifespans, with 84.89 Years.
