The Queen's State of BWAT is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.289 billion BWATians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 16.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped BWATian economy, worth 86.5 trillion betales a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,809 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

BWAT has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, and autocrats are persona non grata. Crime is totally unknown. BWAT's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BWAT is ranked 139,073rd in the world and 8th in An Alternate World for Most Developed, scoring 46.6 on the Human Development Index.
