The 3rd United Socialist States of Baaas is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Benatsa Tsanitso with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.209 billion Baaasians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jergeb. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Baaasian economy, worth 182 trillion Baeghotts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 82,488 Baeghotts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, emergency services don't respond to trailer park fires, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, and enemy combatants are presumed guilty until proven innocent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baaas's national animal is the Baasian Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Baaas is ranked 80,695th in the world and 52nd in Confederacy of Layem for Highest Economic Output, with 182 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
