The Overclockers of Bayswater is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Kernel with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 37.656 billion Bayswaterians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bayswater City. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Bayswaterian economy, worth a remarkable 9,119 trillion bits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 242,189 bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, and practically perfect royal toddlers tend to say "regrettably not at this juncture" rather than "no". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bayswater's national animal is the Cat8, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bayswater is ranked 5,407th in the world and 313th in Osiris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 7,536.54 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
