The Classification of Baconbacon123 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Bacon with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.028 billion Bacon 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 relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Crisp. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Bacon economy, worth a remarkable 4,835 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 321,778 Bacon Bucks, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Cholera is seen as the holiest of diseases, machine gun nests are the latest must-have gardening trend, the government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, and Bacon TV is considered cruel and unusual punishment in other countries. 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 5,451st in the world and 14th in New Western Empire for Largest Governments, scoring 39.36 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
