The Devolution of Babylatia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Kyr Ashwar with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 8.222 billion Babylaei 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 relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Law & Order, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mana. The average income tax rate is 13.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Babylaei economy, worth 997 trillion Bytiks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 121,311 Bytiks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, both illness and poverty are seen as signs of low moral worth, most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists, and the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Babylatia's national animal is the Pachycephalosaur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Objectivism.

Babylatia is ranked 99,341st in the world and 47th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,131.51 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
