The Dictatorship of Bakraine is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vlad Chernyshevsky with an iron fist, and remarkable for its fear of technology, enslaved workforce, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.721 billion Bakrainii are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prugovo. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Bakraini economy, worth 502 trillion Souls 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, 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 an impressive 134,931 Souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Asking 'a penny for your thoughts?' draws law enforcement response, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, and banning party poppers has been a real party pooper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bakraine's national animal is the Shoebill, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tchaikovsky Symphony No 5 Movement 2.

Bakraine is ranked 17,071st in the world and 920th in Lazarus for Highest Poor Incomes, with 85,926.72 Standard Monetary Units.
