The Dexterian Republic of Bawkie is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ahrat Oafemihan with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 4.894 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 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bawkien economy, worth 973 trillion Bawks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 198,867 Bawks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Raindances intended to summon storms instead attract tourists, arbitration is mightier than the sword, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 73,703rd in the world and 3,587th in the South Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 841.16 milliStalins.
