The Apathetic Hegemony of The Peoples Republic of Baschland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Camacho with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.725 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, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. 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 847 trillion Brawndoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 227,609 Brawndoes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,127,929 per year while the poor average 26,044, a ratio of 43.3 to 1.

A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, concert pianists lie about their occupation to avoid ridicule, and skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines. 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 Body of Christ.

The Peoples Republic of Baschland is ranked 150,856th in the world and 130th in The Alliance of Dictators for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.31 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
