The Queen's State of Ba0 is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.77 billion Ba0ians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong Ba0ian economy, worth 421 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 43,185 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 418,713 per year while the poor average 214, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

Voting is voluntary and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ba0's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Ba0 is ranked 396th in the world and 44th in Purgatory for Highest Drug Use, scoring 120 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
