The Empire of Bathera is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Baron Elam Ol'ced IV with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, vat-grown people, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 8.805 billion Batherans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bathera City. The average income tax rate is 15.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Batheran economy, worth a remarkable 2,014 trillion Baht a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 228,760 Baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, tax avoidance is a serious affair, atheistic refugees haven't got a prayer of being granted asylum, and flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bathera's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Bathera is ranked 66,431st in the world and 13th in Maastricht for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,321.46 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
