The 3rd United Socialist States of Baaas is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Alinda Mani with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.744 billion 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, outspoken government 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 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Baaasian economy, worth 148 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 85,001 Baeghotts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", no one engages in 'locker room talk' any more, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. 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.

Baaas is ranked 179,359th in the world and 81st in Confederacy of Layem for Largest Black Market, with 51.7 billion Standard Monetary Units.
