The Hound of The Baskervilles is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 16.047 billion Baskervillesians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, outspoken individuals prioritizes Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Law & Order and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baskerville Hall. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Baskervillesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,144 trillion pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 71,306 pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 314,879 per year while the poor average 10,110, a ratio of 31.1 to 1.

The Father of the House has been in office just shy of a fortnight, procrastination is a national sport, members of majority races are forced out of their homes to make way for Bigtopians, and terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Baskervilles's national animal is the hound, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Baskervilles is ranked 3,835th in the world and 3rd in The Featured Region Followers for Fattest Citizens, with 34.32 Obesity Rate.
