The Federal Monarchy of Biwaki is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Amaterasu Masashige IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.272 billion Biwakians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hescara. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Biwakian economy, worth 130 trillion Biwas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,333 Biwas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Biwaki's national animal is the Saigomo and Omukade, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Saigomoist Atheism.

Biwaki is ranked 252,435th in the world and 10,879th in the South Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.96 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
