The United Kingdom of Bacelna is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 708 million Bacenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nīwesex. The average income tax rate is 15.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Bacelnan economy, worth 53.1 trillion Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,051 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, former gun owners are finding that brandishing paintball guns isn't as satisfying as the real thing, and bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Bacelna's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bacelna is ranked 19,056th in the world and 508th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,339.28 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
