The Federation of Basaran is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Oscar Winston with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.136 billion Basars 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cenobia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Basar economy, worth a remarkable 4,433 trillion Tiber Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 398,145 Tiber Coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,171,669 per year while the poor average 106,524, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

Most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, the Basaran Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Basaran's national animal is the Timber Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Byzantine Catholic.

Basaran is ranked 188,933rd in the world and 119th in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -7.04 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
