The Federal Republic of Bavhia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Bacelar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.153 billion Bavhians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Redentor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Bavhian economy, worth 145 trillion reais a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 126,545 reais, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, anti-government web sites are springing up, and the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bavhia's national animal is the Gavião-real, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bavhia is ranked 34,230th in the world and 400th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,055.87 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
