The Federation of Bionic Ham is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, enslaved workforce, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.003 billion Bionic Hamians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 72.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Bionic Hamian economy, worth a remarkable 3,167 trillion hams a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 197,927 hams, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Distrust of taps has many people bathing only with bottled mineral water, the new one ham coin also makes a handy throwing-star, youth rights demonstrations often end in vicious snowball fights, and the only movement outdoors is of ramen-delivery drones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bionic Ham's national animal is the pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bionic Ham is ranked 19,570th in the world and 230th in 10000 Islands for Largest Governments, scoring 29.97 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
