The Sultanate of Basalistan is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 879 million Basalistanians 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 Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Basalarkh. The average income tax rate is 56.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Basalistanian economy, worth 55.5 trillion Basali Soms a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,161 Basali Soms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money can't buy love but mercy is entirely negotiable, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", and even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Basalistan's national animal is the Menzbier's Marmot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Basalistan is ranked 125,158th in the world and 260th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 285.19 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
