The Celestial Empire of Bathor is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Bojin with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 12.986 billion Sino-Romans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Iacon. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Bathorian economy, worth a remarkable 4,524 trillion Federal Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 348,450 Federal Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, nerdy teenagers have to prove that they're made of the same stuff as their grandparents, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and rumor has it that Emperor Bojin has won three lotteries in a row. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bathor's national animal is the Platinum Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is New Chalcedonian Christianity.

Bathor is ranked 165,495th in the world and 12th in Singapore Island for Most Extreme, scoring 12.63 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
