The Penguin-Adoring Saigomo of Biwaki is a huge, genial nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate population of 741 million Biwakians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hescara. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Biwakian economy, worth 66.2 trillion Biwas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,379 Biwas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Leader is a silly poophead, no one born in Biwaki can fix a leaky faucet, and a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Biwaki's national animal is the Saigomo and Omukade, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Biwaki is ranked 237,896th in the world and 11,538th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -29.41 on the Hayek Index.
