Bhasar (Ahji-Tarati: भासर, Bhāsar; Apelian: Bassar), officially the Socialist Republic of Bhasar (Ahji-Tarati: समाजवादी गणराज्य भासर, Bhāsarēy Samājavādē Ganarājy; Apelian: République socialiste de Bassar), is a country in South Oridia. The country is bordered by Mahsadar to the west, Ogharistan, Vadistan, and Korbukistan to the north, and Zaihan and Hallada to the east. With a population of 1.4 billion people, Bhasar is the most populous country in the world. Bhasar's capital Jayunpur is located on Lake Sirasikar in the country's west and maintains a population of 20 million, making it the third largest city in the world.
Bhasar has an ancient history dating back thousands of years. Homo sapiens from Tusola arrived in Bhasar approximately 50,000 years ago. Early civilizations developed around the country's Great Lakes region, and were enriched by contact with early Patyrian, Zaihanese, and West Oridian civilizations. Much of the region was conquered by the Ahjerian Empire in the 1400s, who were responsible for the spread of Tariqa and the standardization of Ahji-Tarati. Bhasar was gradually conquered by Apelia in the 1700s, and the entire region was integrated into the Apelian colonial empire in 1831. Apelian colonization saw the introduction of modern industry, as well as Patyrian education and religion and the Apelian language. Widespread mistreatment of the native population led to the emergence of an independence movement in the early 20th century. After Apelia's defeat in the Great War, the Apelian government-in-exile took refuge in Bhasar, but was expelled after the unilateral Declaration of Independence in 1949.
Bhasar is officially a socialist state—one of the few in the contemporary world. The 1950 constitution ordains the Revolutionary Socialist Party of Bhasar as the sole legal party. From 1950 to 1958 the country was ruled by the RSP's founder Maha Sirasikar; his death led to a period of violent political struggle known as the Decade of Blood. Since the 1970's, Bhasar has seen significant economic liberalization and social reform, but the state still maintains significant control over the economy, the media, social organizations, and the education system. The country is often referred to as an authoritarian dictatorship that violates human rights and practices mass surveillance. Bhasar is one of the most ethnically, linguistically, and culturally diverse states in the world, although its three official languages (Ahji, Tarati, and Apelian) are spoken natively by just 70% of the population. The primary religions are Hinduism and Tariqa, practiced by 50% and 15% of the population respectively; although the government maintains an officially state atheist policy.
Bhasar has the fifth-largest economy in the world, maintaining an average annual GDP growth rate of 5% over the last ten years. The country is one of the world's largest importers and exporters, with both a large domestic market and a massive manufacturing sector. Bhasar is also a growing hub for technology and science. Its military, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Bhasar, are the largest in the world and are responsible for the country's significant nuclear weapons arsenal.
