The 2nd United Socialist States of Baaas is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Undé Nimbus with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 964 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 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Baaasian economy, worth 72.7 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 75,418 Labours, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, the use of martial arts is banned, and all gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength. 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 212,641st in the world and 139th in Confederacy of Layem for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -100.49 on the Hayek Index.
