The Emirate of Schima Bas is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by The Emir with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 816 million basians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ourelasia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Schima Basian economy, worth 98.0 trillion koins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 120,101 koins, with the richest citizens earning 9.2 times as much as the poorest.

There are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, conspiracy theorists allege Ourelasia's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters, and coat closets are being re-branded as bedrooms. Crime is a major 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 32,350th in the world and 61st in Atlantian Oceania for Most Average, scoring 46.83 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
