The 2nd United Socialist States of Baaas is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Undé Nimbus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 978 million Baaasians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jergeb. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Baaasian economy, worth 74.1 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 75,751 Labours, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The use of martial arts is banned, all gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength, economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, and childhood friends of Undé Nimbus are living it large abroad at the taxpayers' expense. 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 30,274th in the world and 20th in Confederacy of Layem for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.04 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
