The Rising Queendom of Basaran is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Mirvelle Marlyn with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.87 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 Ephyra. The average income tax rate is 4.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Basar economy, worth a remarkable 5,561 trillion Tiber Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 432,131 Tiber Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days. 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 25,861st in the world and 45th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 7.84 Bank.
