The Anarchy of Bayanelokavi is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.613 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, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Bayanelokavian economy, worth a remarkable 3,281 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 228,934th in the world and 25th in Hoshizora for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 6.71 Tourists Per Hour.
