The 3rd United Socialist States of Baaas is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Benatsa Tsanitso with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.055 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 174 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 84,681 Baeghotts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Theatre audiences often need a telescope to see the stage, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, and poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment. 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.
