The Kingdom of Bed Blanket and Cake is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Crushing Dreams with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 2.146 billion Biscuits 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pillow. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Bed Blanket and Cakean economy, worth 122 trillion Cakes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,200 Cakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bed Blanket and Cake's national animal is the Hippocampus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Napping.
