The 4th Level of Bow Bow is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by A Giant Dragon with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 13.862 billion Bow Bowians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bow Bow City. The average income tax rate is 69.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Bow Bowian economy, worth a remarkable 1,397 trillion 350s a year, is dominated by the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,837 350s, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Kids refer to anything below the neck as "the parts that shall not be named", Harry Potter books are banned, euthanasia is legal, and party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Bow Bow's national animal is the Green Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Fire.

Bow Bow is ranked 74,224th in the world and 15th in Grace of Gaia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 5.06 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
