The Dictatorship of Bawnnmore is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dee with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.247 billion Bawnnmoreans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bawnzula. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Bawnnmorean economy, worth 702 trillion Quids a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Tourism, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 165,520 Quids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, large sections of Bawnnmore have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bawnnmore's national animal is the Zulubear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Robawn Catholic.

Bawnnmore is ranked 8,371st in the world and 34th in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 91.3 on the Human Development Index.
