South Baba

Population4.247 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Alden Ridgeway


The Republic of South Baba is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Alden Ridgeway with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.247 billion South Babans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bocaugh. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient South Baban economy, worth 796 trillion farthings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 187,632 farthings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, nude art is becoming wildly popular, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. 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 34,731st in the world and 797th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 105.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
