The Classification of Baconbacon123 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Bacon with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 16.184 billion Bacon have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Crisp. The average income tax rate is 21.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Bacon economy, worth a remarkable 5,461 trillion Bacon Bucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 337,449 Bacon Bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, train stations have more platforms than a 1970s disco, stoogery and pratfalls are about as scathingly clever as Bacon humor gets, and the latest superhero movie features a caped Well-Crisped Strip with adamantium claws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Baconbacon123's national animal is the Well-Crisped Strip, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Bacon.

Baconbacon123 is ranked 1,599th in the world and 5th in New Western Empire for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 20,802.15 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
