The Kingdom of Bavira is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Lwegeleza III with an iron fist, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.905 billion The Vira people are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uvira. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Vira economy, worth 408 trillion Vira francs 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 140,539 Vira francs, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, King Lwegeleza III's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bavira's national animal is the Aardvark, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kimbanguism.

Bavira is ranked 48,518th in the world and 330th in Europe for Highest Economic Output, with 408 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
