The Dictatorship of Biglads is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dunbar with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, ban on automobiles, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.164 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.7%.

The powerhouse Bigladsian economy, worth 249 trillion gibraltars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,325 gibraltars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 509,821 per year while the poor average 16,320, a ratio of 31.2 to 1.

The consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, it's usual for grandparents to stay in the family home with their descendants but younger children are often frightened of them, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Bigladians any less frightened. 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 and its national religion is voidism.

Biglads is ranked 75,358th in the world and 1st in The Region of WESC for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 11.57 Missed References Per Hour.
