The Federation of Basaran is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Theodore Malus with a fair hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, otherworldly petting zoo, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.594 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, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cenobia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Basar economy, worth a remarkable 3,866 trillion Tiber Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 402,999 Tiber Coins, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Basaran's national animal is the Crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Byzantine Catholic.

Basaran is ranked 897th in the world and 1st in Union of Liberal Nations for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 12,836.93 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
