The Kingdom of Bacopa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Robert II with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 19.048 billion Bacopans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bomentre. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Bacopan economy, worth a remarkable 5,148 trillion mesens a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 270,282 mesens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', and replacement organs are grown in vats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bacopa's national animal is the goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is nothing.

Bacopa is ranked 1,107th in the world and 1st in bonvanasmith for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 4,786.28 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
