South Baba

Population2.002 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Alden Ridgeway


The Republic of South Baba is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Alden Ridgeway with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.002 billion South Babans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bocaugh. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient South Baban economy, worth 274 trillion farthings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,050 farthings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Beggars lack pockets for spare change, the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and foreign despots proudly bandstand on South Baban airwaves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Baba's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

South Baba is ranked 208,841st in the world and 7,592nd in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -238.81 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
