The Boutique Empire of Bassiliya is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 5.666 billion Bassiliyans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — is primarily concerned with Healthcare, with Education, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but inefficient Bassiliyan economy, worth 151 trillion Kairmas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 26,779 Kairmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, organ donation is compulsory, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bassiliya's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
