The Republic of Bavant is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by SeRHi0 with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, state-planned economy, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.09 billion Bavantians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Кельзбург. The average income tax rate is 71.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Bavantian economy, worth 149 trillion Bents 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 136,819 Bents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government is hungry to spread communism beyond the nation's borders, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Bavantian Liberator", nude art is becoming wildly popular, and the government has enacted freedom of information. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bavant's national animal is the monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Христианство.

Bavant is ranked 18,671st in the world and 297th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 7,572.62 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
