The Rising Queendom of Basaran is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Mirvelle Marlyn with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.852 billion Basars enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ephyra. The average income tax rate is 4.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Basar economy, worth a remarkable 5,546 trillion Tiber Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 431,551 Tiber Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, the new Basar-made OS is buggier and more inconvenient than a horse-drawn carriage, and several politicians have resigned following clarifications that "bribe" and "donation" are not actually synonyms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Basaran's national animal is the Timber Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Florism.

Basaran is ranked 245,294th in the world and 163rd in The Hole To Hide In for Most Primitive, scoring -1182.73 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
