The Republic of Basiliania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Basilianian Government with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.201 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, liberal, 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 2,066 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 184,465 Basilianums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It turns out you can teach cats new tricks, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, recognizing the Basilianian flag qualifies you for citizenship, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. 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 719th in the world and 1st in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1,050.3 Bank.
