The People's Republic of Eastern Bahia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Gabas with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, rampant corporate plagiarism, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.728 billion Bahians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, with Defense, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salvador. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Eastern Bahian economy, worth a remarkable 1,209 trillion Novos cruzados roais do rois a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 179,812 Novos cruzados roais do rois, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Male tourists tend to be fearful of Eastern Bahia's deadly femme fatales, the government loves seeing the little people fight, multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, and Eastern Bahia successfully hosted the the South Pacific Olympics. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Eastern Bahia's national animal is the Bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Spiritism and Afro-Brazilian religion.

Eastern Bahia is ranked 65,138th in the world and 2,356th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 7.69 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
