The Penguin-Adoring Saigomo of Biwaki is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Amaterasu Masashige IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 765 million Biwakians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hescara. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Biwakian economy, worth 69.6 trillion Biwas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,970 Biwas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, in distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days, and inter-species marriages are ignored by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Biwaki's national animal is the Saigomo and Omukade, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Biwaki is ranked 261,834th in the world and 12,196th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -13.42 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
