The Democratic Republic of Baycanistan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Daniyal with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.147 billion Baycans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of İlisu. The average income tax rate is 17.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Baycan economy, worth a remarkable 1,265 trillion Puls a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,052 Puls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, the Baycan delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", major cities run on potato batteries, and homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them. Crime is totally unknown. Baycanistan's national animal is the Ak Bars, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sülh.

Baycanistan is ranked 222,360th in the world and 1,159th in Europe for Most Armed, with 0.15 Weapons Per Person.
