The Apathetic Hegemony of The Peoples Republic of Baschland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Camacho with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ritual sacrifices, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.834 billion Baschlandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Spirituality, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rapture. The average income tax rate is 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Baschlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,062 trillion Brawndoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 263,335 Brawndoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Foreigners are treated with great suspicion, an enormous health awareness programme is underway, public enemies often walk home with spotless garments and crime records, and street gangs rule most of the nation's major cities. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 82,288th in the world and 60th in Texas for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,021.54 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
