The Republic of Bayoux is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 579 million Bayouxians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tallahassee. The average income tax rate is 32.0%.

The powerhouse Bayouxian economy, worth 48.5 trillion Bayette Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 83,808 Bayette Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Bayouxian roads, and disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bayoux's national animal is the Pelican, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Bayoux is ranked 38,066th in the world and 25th in The Fallout Wasteland for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 129.8 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
