The 3rd United Socialist States of Baaas is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Benatsa Tsanitso with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.168 billion Baaasians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — 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 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Baaasian economy, worth 181 trillion Baeghotts 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 83,699 Baeghotts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, enemy agents are generally eliminated with extreme prejudice, and the comic book series 'Benatsa Tsanitso and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 216,772nd in the world and 115th in Confederacy of Layem for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.38 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
