The E G G of Past beans is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mr bean with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, ritual sacrifices, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.222 billion Past beansians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of new beans. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.3%.

The very strong beanie economy, worth 103 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 84,984 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 272,902 per year while the poor average 20,059, a ratio of 13.6 to 1.

The legislature has come out as bicameral, Mr bean has just been declared ruler of Past beans in an international press conference, Egg beans has been named as Past beans's national religion, and nine out of ten citizens of Past beans answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Past beans's national animal is the cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Egg beans.

Past beans is ranked 116,828th in the world and 3,491st in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 187 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
