The Eternal Mageocracy of Basementees is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ođinnshrafn Khagan Numerian IV Drake with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, ubiquitous missile silos, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 18.643 billion Thu'uls are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novus Damascus. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient K't Hu'ul economy, worth an astonishing 13,443 trillion Runcibles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 721,119 Runcibles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, roosters that herald the rising sun are immediately sent to the slaughterhouse, and when shaking hands with foreign leaders Ođinnshrafn Khagan Numerian IV Drake wears an armoured gauntlet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Basementees's national animal is the Ursine Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Nahuatl.

Basementees is ranked 128th in the world and 1st in Pax Britannia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 51,042.16 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
