The Armed Republic of Saint Basilia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lee Han-Wing with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.096 billion Saint Basilians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wellston. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Saint Basilian economy, worth 80.6 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 73,578 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Saint Basilian officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, bicyclists are banned from major roads, and the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Basilia's national animal is the Opossum, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Saint Basilia is ranked 100,679th in the world and 755th in The Communist Bloc for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.42 percentage of bribes refused.
