The Democratic States of Bichedder is a very large, cultured nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 188 million Bichedderians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Bichedderian economy, worth 7.57 trillion Bichedders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,254 Bichedders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Bichedder's radio stations, and asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bichedder's national animal is the Doggies, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bichedder is ranked 223,169th in the world and 6,452nd in the South Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 3.70 billion Standard Monetary Units.
