Over the course of the dynasty, participation dropped to critically low levels. Bucky, who had been mostly inactive up to that point, idled one Baker and bribed a second to idle themself shortly before he unloaded his accumulated pie stock to eliminate the remaining Bakers near-simultaneously.
At the end of the dynasty, there were only 3 active Bakers.
