The Principality of Bashivk is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 951 million Bashivkians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of bashivka city. The average income tax rate is 17.6%.

The Bashivkian economy, worth 54.9 trillion Bashivkian Ruples a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 57,706 Bashivkian Ruples, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Political dissidents are cut off from essential services, Bashivk has designated bashivka city as its capital city, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, and pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bashivk's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bashivk is ranked 170,382nd in the world and 342nd in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 22.1 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
