The Republic of Bywell is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.471 billion Bywellians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Hope. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bywellian economy, worth 150 trillion Bywellian Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,432 Bywellian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Atheists in the nation feel uneasy living in buildings where they were once vilified, it takes a village to catch a criminal, anyone can get ahead in life if they want to, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bywell's national animal is the Alpaca, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bywell is ranked 214,461st in the world and 8,656th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.02 Obesity Rate.
