The Dexterian Republic of Bawkie is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Hommas Moiqawiner with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 5.581 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 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bawkien economy, worth a remarkable 1,176 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 210,809 Bawks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, a soldier's body is a temple, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, and the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards. 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 205,382nd in the world and 7,729th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -10.39 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
