The Federation of Basaran is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Theodore Malus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.569 billion Basars enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cenobia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Basar economy, worth a remarkable 3,848 trillion Tiber Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 402,170 Tiber Coins, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, young men in tiny bikinis draw neither comment nor stares on the morning commute, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and tourists call Basar beach towns "the fine coastline". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Basaran's national animal is the Crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Byzantine Catholic.

Basaran is ranked 486th in the world and 1st in Union of Liberal Nations for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 43,630.72 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
