The national symbol of the Haifo-Pallisican Imperial Trade Union is the Bijeko-Lisea-Nas, Corum's top land based predator.

The Haifo-Pallisican Imperial Trade Union, otherwise unofficially known as The Bassarids The Bassarid Empire, or "the Imperial Trade Union," is an economic, political, religious, and military union which exists between a number of states and territories which exist in Micras' eastern hemisphere.

The Bassarids are among the more influential nations in modern history. The nation is best known for its highly efficient, highly productive, and highly controversial economic system, which has driven the nation's expansion across the east, and which has led to the establishment of one of the largest international markets in history. Insofar as it is the birthplace of two major world religions: the Pallisican Religion and the Stripping Path, the nation is also regarded for its highly defined religious culture. The latter of these two religions has since its inception played a central role in several major conflicts in recent history. In addition to its contributions to the fields of economics and religion, the Bassarids are also known for their commitment to the pursuit of knowledge and the advancement of science. To this end, the Bassarids have led the way in the study of astronomy, zoology, and several other scientific fields. The nation is also a leading developer of military technology, which is used by allies around the world. The New Zimian War League, for its part, is among the most formidable military forces on Micras. Despite all of this, it is also the case that the Haifo-Pallisican Imperial Trade Union is also perhaps the most politically unpopular and widely resented nation in the world. This owes in part to the role which the nation played in the Harpy War, a brutal conflict which arose in Keltia during the final stages of the internationally waged War of Lost Brothers, and more broadly, to the nation's open and often unapologetic support for terrorist organizations and criminal enterprises around the globe. For its part, the Bassarid government mostly restricts interactions to the other members of the USSO, an organization which the nation itself helped to establish, along with important allies.

The Haifo-Pallisican Imperial Trade Union is the political entity which facilitates the existence of the trade networks between the states of Passio-Corum and the Maritime Markets of the Strait of Haifa which arise as a result of investment in the Port of Vines. To this extent, the Trade Union maintains and protects a system of complex trade routes which extend continuously from North to South for at least 18,000 km, and from East to West for over 23,000 km. The Bassarids, to this end, extend across the entirety of Micras' eastern hemisphere, and into portions of the west. As such, the Haifo-Pallisican Imperial Trade Union - though its actual land claims are relatively limited - is perhaps the most expansive and geographically influential nation in the world.

The Haifo-Pallisican Imperial Trade Union is divided between a total of 29 semi-independent states or territorial governing bodies, which span across the continents of Apollonia, Cibola, Corum, Eura, and Keltia. These 29 territories can be grouped into Associate Domains, broad political regions governed by rulers appointed by the Crown of Passio-Corum, which maintain high levels of autonomy from the central Bassarid government. The Associate Domains and their constituent members are listed in the table below:


Associate Domain of Corumia (Bassarid Corumia)

The Associate Domain of Corumia is collection of nations which represent the oldest continuous constituent members of the economic and political union now known as the Haifo-Pallisican Imperial Trade Union.

The National Flag of the Haifo-Pallisican Imperial Trade Union incorporates the basic design of the flag of Passas with design elements of the flag of the Maritime Markets of the Strait of Haifa, which is itself based upon the flag of the Free State of Haifa.
Coat of Arms Haifopallisica.png
Coat of Arms of Haifo-Pallisica
Adopted in the 36.80's PSSC, the Coat of Arms of of the Haifo-Pallisican Imperial Trade Union combines elements inspired by the crests of the Greater Pallisican Trade Association, the Maritime Markets of the Strait of Haifa, and the Stripping Path.
  1. The Flag of the Trade Union: The flag of the Trade Union is displayed prominently across the shield which is the centerpiece of the nation's coat of arms.
  2. The White-Faced Weasel: The most ancient symbol of the Passasian nation, the white-faced weasel runs across the nation's flag, in the direction opposite that of the weasel featured on the crest of Passio-Corum. This difference represents the shift in national identity which occurred upon the ascension of Kan Zen to the position of Crown of Passio-Corum.
  3. Labyrinth Knot: The symbol of the force of Chaos in the Haifan religion, the Labyrinth Knot occupies a position of prominence above the White-Faced Weasel, such that it symbolizes the preeminence of chaos before all things.
  4. The Grand Skep: Two communities of bees swarm towards the Grand Skep, symbolizing the joining of houses of Passio-Corum and the Maritime Markets.
  5. The Rising Sun: Atos rises constantly above the ever-expanding Bassarid Empire.
  6. The Maenad Mermaids: The mermaids - the guardians of the Eastern Oceans who drink mystic wine from sacred sea-shells - are an ancient Keltian symbol of profound devotion to Dionysus, the primary god of the Haifan people.
  7. The Uso-Oname: The purple laurel at the bottom of the Coat of Arms represents the Uso-Oname, the national tree of Passio-Corum. The gray ribbon at the bottom of the laurel represents the trunk of the Uso-Oname. The pale pink bulbs represent the sweet-smelling flowers of the Uso, in the final stage before entering full bloom.
