The Republic of Baba Zace is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate population of 358 million Baba Zaceans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 39.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Baba Zacean economy, worth 16.8 trillion pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,821 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Increasing numbers of children in Baba Zace have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, the government snoops on private internet connections, and flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baba Zace's national animal is the elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Baba Zace is ranked 33,393rd in the world and 1,584th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,800.58 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
