The Dictatorship of Biglads is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dunbar with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.636 billion Bigladians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of heaven's gate. The average income tax rate is 51.4%.

The powerhouse Bigladsian economy, worth 407 trillion gibraltars a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,959 gibraltars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, and unpopular politicians are often caught between a rock and a hard place. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Biglads's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is voidism.

Biglads is ranked 19,439th in the world and 1st in The Region of WESC for Most Influential, scoring 1,997 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
