The Republic of Basiliania is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Basilianian Government with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.892 billion Basilianians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aequalitas. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Basilianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,239 trillion Basilianums 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 mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 179,839 Basilianums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government adverts say that twelve lashes a day keeps divine wrath at bay, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Basiliania's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Basiliania is ranked 795th in the world and 10th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Inclusive, scoring 388.9 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
