The Union of Bayoux is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Tomas Sanchez with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.116 billion 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 Administration, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tallahassee. The average income tax rate is 40.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Bayouxian economy, worth 189 trillion Bayette Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 89,364 Bayette Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone, prison visits increase substantially during election years, Tallahassee's iconic yellow taxis are nowhere to be seen, and roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Bayoux is ranked 54,147th in the world and 1,585th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,554.14 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
