The Shtâto of Bagojo is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by sc Yaydin lo Dayni with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.28 billion Bagojey are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bagojo Urbo. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Bagojes economy, worth a remarkable 3,235 trillion Bagojes dolâroes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 390,780 Bagojes dolâroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Edgy teens know that illegal discos are where the cool cats hang, childish pranks are no laughing matter, government employees are authorized driver's licenses to get their bosses much-needed morning espressos, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bagojo's national animal is the âglo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is shtâtismo.

Bagojo is ranked 5th in the world and 1st in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 45,110.7 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
