The Burman Kakistocracy of Basementees is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ođinnshrafn Khagan Numerian IV Drake with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 19.462 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 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 14,134 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 726,264 Runcibles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Edutainment video games are taking Basementees's students to the next level, it is often said that only Ođinnshrafn Khagan Numerian IV Drake could bring down Dàguó, the government is crossing the Rubicon in its levels of corruption, and five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes. 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 174,584th in the world and 30th in Pax Britannia for Fattest Citizens, with 7.79 Obesity Rate.
