The Kingdom of Greater Bahland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Chancellor Karl von Relburg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.431 billion Bahlandians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Königsburg. The average income tax rate is 66.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Bahlandian economy, worth 181 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 126,818 Marks, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, heretic deviants are free to practice their deviance outside of Greater Bahland, the government maintains that belief brings greater security than money or a roof, and citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Bahland's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Greater Bahland is ranked 24,720th in the world and 323rd in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 8.35 Bank.
