The 3rd United Socialist States of Baaas is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Benatsa Tsanitso with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.043 billion 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 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 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Baaasian economy, worth 172 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 84,258 Baeghotts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, and theatre audiences often need a telescope to see the stage. 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 62,445th in the world and 41st in Confederacy of Layem for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 52.16 Whatever.
