The 3rd United Socialist States of Baaas is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alinda Mani with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.785 billion Baaasians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government 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 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Baaasian economy, worth 152 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 and Information Technology. Average income is 85,453 Baeghotts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, the government is seen as openly hostile to all religion, and there's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies. 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 10,738th in the world and 5th in Confederacy of Layem for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,158.1 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
