The Republic of New Bawkie 20 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.197 billion New Bawkie 20ians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 38.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The New Bawkie 20ian economy, worth 190 trillion marks 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. 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 59,648 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gambling is outlawed, the police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists, builders across New Bawkie 20 are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to New Bawkie 20 City to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Bawkie 20's national animal is the giraffe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Bawkie 20 is ranked 125,329th in the world and 413th in Bawkie for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 547.09 tourists per hour.
