The Kingdom of Ba-Sing-Se is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ezra Jackson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.881 billion Ba-Sing-Seans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Omashu. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ba-Sing-Sean economy, worth 103 trillion Yuan a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is 55,171 Yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, and stun grenade flashes and assault weapon fire form the expected nocturnal soundscape of Ba-Sing-Se. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ba-Sing-Se's national animal is the Badgermole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic.

Ba-Sing-Se is ranked 156,242nd in the world and 6th in Union of Democrats for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 341.61 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
