The Empire of Bathera is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Baron Elam Ol'ced IV with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, ban on automobiles, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 8.61 billion Batherans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bathera City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Batheran economy, worth a remarkable 1,935 trillion Baht a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 224,751 Baht, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

People caught mistreating Bathera's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain, child adoption by homosexual couples has been outlawed, children raised in multi-faith households claim the other deity would let them stay up later, and the nation doesn't need to go to war in order to acquire new territory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bathera's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Bathera is ranked 77,079th in the world and 10th in Maastricht for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,055.52 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
