The Democratic Republic of Bakongland is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 321 million Bakong love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Bankongian economy, worth 6.79 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 21,162 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former gun owners are finding that brandishing paintball guns isn't as satisfying as the real thing, masterpieces by male artists are on display in the dumpsters behind the gallery, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bakongland's national animal is the Megapode, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bakongland is ranked 193,902nd in the world and 380th in Thaecia for Highest Average Incomes, with 21,162.74 Standard Monetary Units.
