The Democratic Republic of Backatri is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Natalio Graciano with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and national health service. The hard-nosed population of 10.663 billion Backatri are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port-of-Backatri. The average income tax rate is 64.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Backatri economy, worth a remarkable 1,185 trillion Dólars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,213 Dólars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, patriotic citizens simply tend to applaud rather than sing the nation's praises, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, and selfie stick use is a required Scout badge. Crime is well under control. Backatri's national animal is the Great Backatri Sea Snake, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Backatri is ranked 12,163rd in the world and 2nd in The Grand Imperial Alliance for Most Developed, scoring 88.13 on the Human Development Index.
