The Empire of Bathera is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Elam Olced II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.784 billion Batherans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bathera City. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Batheran economy, worth a remarkable 1,462 trillion Baht 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. 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 an amazing 215,604 Baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, the relatives of suicide victims tend to be angry rather than sad, a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Batheran as 'your finger, you fool', and it is illegal to make racist remarks in public. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bathera's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Bathera is ranked 3,187th in the world and 8th in Thaecia for Most Developed, scoring 95.96 on the Human Development Index.
