The Holy Empire of Bawrai is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Holy Highness Bawrai with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 13.109 billion Servants of His Holy Highness Bawrai are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The City of His Holy Highness Bawrai. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Servant of His Holy Highness Bawrai economy, worth a remarkable 3,085 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 235,359 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wishing you had children is considered a sign of child abuse, the number of judges has tripled in recent months, politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"), and wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bawrai's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Worshiping His Holy Highness Bawrai.

Bawrai is ranked 127,291st in the world and 2,820th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 244 billion Standard Monetary Units.
