The Apathetic Hegemony of The Peoples Republic of Baschland is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Camacho with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, ubiquitous missile silos, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.825 billion Baschlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Spirituality, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rapture. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Baschlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,518 trillion Brawndoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 260,769 Brawndoes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,977,949 per year while the poor average 9,600, a ratio of 206 to 1.

Parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children, the nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, and the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Peoples Republic of Baschland's national animal is the Hooker, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Custom of NaCl.

The Peoples Republic of Baschland is ranked 204,294th in the world and 110th in The Alliance of Dictators for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 1.53 Effective Tax Rate.
