The Dictatorship of Bawnnmore is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dee with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.138 billion Bawnnmoreans 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bawnzula. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Bawnnmorean economy, worth 666 trillion Quids 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Retail, 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 161,169 Quids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables, Bawnnmore is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and lion-reed-vulture-hand-reed-mouth is how Dee is spelt now. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bawnnmore's national animal is the Zulubear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Robawn Catholic.

Bawnnmore is ranked 5,212th in the world and 23rd in New Western Empire for Lowest Crime Rates, with 109.38 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
