The Dictatorship of Biglads is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Dunbar with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.188 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 40.4%.

The powerhouse Bigladsian economy, worth 376 trillion gibraltars a year, is broadly diversified and 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 118,078 gibraltars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 516,303 per year while the poor average 17,036, a ratio of 30.3 to 1.

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 24,936th in the world and 1st in The Region of WESC for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 5,852.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
