LeaderBasilianian Government


The Republic of Basiliania is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Basilianian Government with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.544 billion Basilianians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aequalitas. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Basilianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,767 trillion Basilianums 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 185,171 Basilianums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Basilianian officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, ratings for sitcom reruns are often much higher than election debates, and in distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Basiliania's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Basiliania is ranked 1,050th in the world and 17th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 97.19 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
