The Grand Duchy of Bacontime is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 890 million Bacon Bits are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mabalacat. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Bacon Bitean economy, worth 115 trillion Doubloons 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 black market in Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Information Technology. 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 129,806 Doubloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's best to decline if Leader offers to buy a round of drinks, the navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, and people forget to eat because they are too busy singing Leader's praises. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bacontime's national animal is the Capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bacontime is ranked 105,866th in the world and 4th in NorthWest Tibetquadoristanada for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 745.32 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
