The United Republic's of Basilon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sebastian Du Pont with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, cynical population of 2.13 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Law & Order and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ponta. The average income tax rate is 98%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The Basilon Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Basilon's national animal is the Nergal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Dunt.

Basilon is ranked 2nd in Altrania and 15,423rd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1.712 Stalins.
