The Emirate of Schima Bas is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Emir with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.743 billion basians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ourelasia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Schima Basian economy, worth 226 trillion koins 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 129,857 koins, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Basians are fixin' ta comma any way they wanna, the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, commuters and their desktops both bemoan their hard drives, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Schima Bas's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Schima Bas is ranked 41,754th in the world and 39th in Atlantian Oceania for Healthiest Citizens, with 6.47 bananas ingested per day.
