The Grand Duchy of Bapaving is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Tupou I with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 3.133 billion Bapavingians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaihitahi. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bapavingian economy, worth 331 trillion specks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,827 specks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, new homeowners go furniture hunting with crowbars, and vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bapaving's national animal is the Red-footed tortoise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Christian Church of the East.

Bapaving is ranked 56,735th in the world and 29th in Refugia for Rudest Citizens, with 67.08 Insults Per Minute.
