The Second Iteration of Biggonian Megaist Empire is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.709 billion Biggonians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ivasburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Biggonian Megaist Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 1,626 trillion Florins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 345,478 Florins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,491,130 per year while the poor average 50,991, a ratio of 29.2 to 1.

Many are asking why the latest naval vessel is named after Saint Bartholomeus the Many Handed, arthritic citizens seem underrepresented at royal meet-and-greets, Biggonian Megaist Empire isn't what it used to be, and rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Biggonian Megaist Empire's national animal is the Peasant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of Personality.

Biggonian Megaist Empire is ranked 11,813th in the world and 35th in Lands End for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 363.29 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
