The Empire of Bibalya is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 407 million Bibalyans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 43.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Bibalyan economy, worth 21.0 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 51,522 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, newlywed misogynists complain about their wives keeping their maiden names, sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour', and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bibalya's national animal is the Zebra, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bibalya is ranked 73,620th in the world and 3,412th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,486.82 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
