The Empire of Bathera is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Baron Elam Ol'ced IV with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 8.488 billion Batherans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bathera City. The average income tax rate is 6.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Batheran economy, worth a remarkable 1,877 trillion Baht a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 221,185 Baht, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Michelin-star chefs are being called on to prepare menus for six-year-olds, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, and the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bathera's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Bathera is ranked 5,178th in the world and 84th in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 117.43 Bank.
