The Kingdom of Bacon Land is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Bacon Lord with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.524 billion Bacon Slaves 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baconshire. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bacon Slave economy, worth 388 trillion Bacon Slabs 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. 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 an impressive 154,013 Bacon Slabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protestors are soaking piles of Bacon Slabs in blood to make a point about government incomes, believers who wear their faith on their sleeves make easy targets in hostile areas, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, and getting an autograph has become harder than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bacon Land's national animal is the Bacon Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is PIG.

Bacon Land is ranked 111,091st in the world and 4,531st in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 553.22 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
