The Kingdom of Bacon Land is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bacon Lord with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, enforced nudity, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.673 billion Bacon Slaves 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baconshire. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bacon Slave economy, worth 413 trillion Bacon Slabs 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 154,599 Bacon Slabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Bacon Slabs each year, creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs, and Bacon Land is increasingly belligerent on the international stage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bacon Land's national animal is the Bacon Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is PIG.

Bacon Land is ranked 30,229th in the world and 1,840th in Osiris for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 162.5 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
