The Grand Duchy of Bapaving is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Tupou I with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.143 billion Bapavingians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaihitahi. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bapavingian economy, worth 331 trillion specks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,527 specks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, posters encourage people to "Just Do It!", and war vets look after war animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bapaving's national animal is the Red-footed tortoise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Christian Church of the East.

Bapaving is ranked 180,355th in the world and 91st in Refugia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.9 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
