The Commonwealth of Bastropia is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 298 million Bastropians 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 medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Knobbs Hill. The average income tax rate is 30.6%.

The strong Bastropian economy, worth 15.2 trillion Gold Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 51,095 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Knobbs Hill. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bastropia's national animal is the Kit-Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bastropia is ranked 65,993rd in the world and 12th in Selene for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 67.53 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
