The government of Ba Sing Se
The government of Ba Sing Se closely resembles that of a socialist government, such as the one that existed in the U.S.S.R. or China. In these governments, people were brainwashed, threatened, and watched. If anyone tryed to go against the government, they could dissapear. The government would flood the people with lies about how everything was perfect, and how they were so much better off then anyone else, but this was usually just an attempt to keep the people under the control of the government.
