The Dexterian Republic of Bawkie is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Qussan Faitamaqaj with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 6.754 billion Bawkiens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mezqurbha Dzifatfatbawqur. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Bawkien economy, worth a remarkable 1,556 trillion Bawks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 230,507 Bawks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, and broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bawkie's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dexterism.

Bawkie is ranked 1,469th in the world and 45th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,773.45 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
