The Heretical Hamstrings of The Mythical Bacon Tribe is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its public floggings, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 8.514 billion Mythical-Bacon-Tribesters are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous government prioritizes Spirituality, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 50.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mythical Bacon Tribean economy, worth 248 trillion baconiis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,129 baconiis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Thieves are flogged in public for their crimes, Harry Potter books are banned, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Mythical Bacon Tribe's national animal is the Fried Swine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Mythical Bacon Tribe is ranked 49,673rd in the world and 10th in Sumerian Coalition for Most Influential, scoring 480 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
