The 2nd United Socialist States of Baaas is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Undé Nimbus with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 998 million Baaasians 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 Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jergeb. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Baaasian economy, worth 78.3 trillion Labours a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is 78,427 Labours, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baaas's national animal is the Baasian Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Baaas is ranked 30,511th in the world and 19th in Confederacy of Layem for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.04 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
