The Holy Blue Kingdom of Basses is a colossal, pleasant nation, ruled by Yodle with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 5.91 billion Bass Players have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yodle City. The average income tax rate is 32.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Bassesian economy, worth 406 trillion Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 68,720 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Basses's national animal is the cow and its national religion is Yodlism.

Basses is ranked 50,758th in the world and 25th in Disney World for Largest Populations, with 5.91 billion Capita.
