Location: Topid

Regional Influence: Ambassador


The Republic of Bass is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 19.793 billion Bassians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 54.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Bassian economy, worth 371 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 18,787 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bass's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bass is ranked 137,912th in the world and 14th in Topid for Rudest Citizens, with 44.99 Insults Per Minute.
