The Federation of Bastalis is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by High Councilor Zakaria Reid with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.293 billion Bastalians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newburton. The average income tax rate is 58.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Bastalian economy, worth 182 trillion Federal Chrons a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,434 Federal Chrons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, religious education is a new government priority, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bastalis's national animal is the Albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bastalis is ranked 110,064th in the world and 4,394th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,415.79 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
