The Holy Empire of Bawrai is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Holy Highness Bawrai with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 11.928 billion Servants of His Holy Highness Bawrai are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The City of His Holy Highness Bawrai. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Servant of His Holy Highness Bawrai economy, worth a remarkable 2,778 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 232,928 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, His Holy Highness Bawrai signs the laws but abides by none of them, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, and helping grandma with her Misgendering 101 homework is a national rite of passage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bawrai's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Worshiping His Holy Highness Bawrai.

Bawrai is ranked 202,917th in the world and 8,916th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -18.38 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
