The Democratic Republic of Bahia Roja is a huge, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 312 million Bahiarojenses are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puerto Cano. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Bahia Rojan economy, worth 2.98 trillion corals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 9,564 corals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bahia Roja's national animal is the troupial, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bahia Roja is ranked 139,583rd in the world and 105th in Libertarian Socialist Confederation for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,082.94 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
