The Kingdom of Bacon Land is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Bacon Lord with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, disturbing lack of elderly people, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.977 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baconshire. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bacon Slave economy, worth 294 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 Tourism. 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 149,077 Bacon Slabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, and Bacon Slave watches list strained wrists as a common side effect. 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 28,101st in the world and 778th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 68.7 on the Human Development Index.
