The Republic of New Bawkie 61 is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.051 billion New Bawkie 61ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 34.2%.

The very strong New Bawkie 61ian economy, worth 122 trillion lire a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,803 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the New Bawkie 61ian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and government officials say that if you close your eyes and wish really hard the budget deficit will go away. Crime is moderate. New Bawkie 61's national animal is the squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Bawkie 61 is ranked 78,824th in the world and 271st in Bawkie for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 4.74 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
