The Crypto Island of Bilancorn is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Khaos with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 8.927 billion Bilancornians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Derion. The average income tax rate is 36.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bilancornian economy, worth a remarkable 2,316 trillion Crypto Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 259,471 Crypto Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, builders across Bilancorn are blocked up with orders for new public loos, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime is totally unknown. Bilancorn's national animal is the Tiger Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Darkonism.

Bilancorn is ranked 9,904th in the world and 1st in Bisscaso Islands for Largest Governments, scoring 35.72 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
