The Boutique Empire of Bassiliya is a massive, safe nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 2.483 billion Bassiliyans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 65.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Bassiliyan economy, worth 73.4 trillion Kairmas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 29,549 Kairmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, organ donation is compulsory, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bassiliya's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bassiliya is ranked 33,200th in the world and 11th in Thegye for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,175.46 Tourists Per Hour.
