The Tangled Policymaking Chimera of Baizou is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Premier Fukushima Sonoko with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.318 billion Baizoans 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wakuna. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Baizoan economy, worth 89.8 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,099 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, members of majority races are forced out of their homes to make way for Bigtopians, and the nationalized auto industry is adept at making durable little cars nobody wants to drive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baizou's national animal is the white elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mahōzōhō and Christianity and Buddhism.

Baizou is ranked 146,063rd in the world and 2nd in Baizou Jima for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 672.58 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
