The Federation of Basaran is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Kane Marlyn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.272 billion Basars enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cenobia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Basar economy, worth a remarkable 7,119 trillion Tiber Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 466,164 Tiber Coins, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, regional governors use national law books as toilet paper, and EpiPen sales have skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Basaran's national animal is the Timber Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Florism.

Basaran is ranked 198,351st in the world and 9th in The Open Door for Most Income Equality, scoring 16.1 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
