The Kingdom of Bed Blanket and Cake is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Crushing Dreams with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, feral children, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.492 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 Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pillow. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Bed Blanket and Cakean economy, worth 141 trillion Cakes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,959 Cakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, and the number of students attending university has reached a record high. 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.

Bed Blanket and Cake is ranked 34,499th in the world and 1,658th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 134.05 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
