Allard Hectorzoon Baas (born 1 May, 1972) is a Midonian economist and politician, serving as the first Prime Minister of the Imperial Vistari Confederation, as well as leading the Imperial Conservative Party of Vistaraland.

After a successful career as a financial consultant, Baas ran for election as a member of the Midonian Molebaaist Party, a minor political party proposing the reunification of Middenwoud under Sander, Duke of Westerlijk Middenwoud. This party, like Baas, took influences from Royalistic Populism, and Baas soon became a key advocate for this ideology after being elected as a Representative of Commerce. The MMP soon became absorbed into the much larger Imperial Conservative Party, which gave Baas a chance to make connections with others of similar values, joining the Loyalist Reformist Group in 2008 to lobby for the electoral reform to bring the federal system closer to the more democratic local councils of Molensland and his home of Westerlijk Middenwoud. This faction grew to prominence in the aImperial Conservative Party as Prince Hendrik van Koersland entered politics, who endorsed the reforms pushed by the LRG - having introduced these elected councils to Koersland in 2015.

In that year, with Prince Hendrik's endorsement, Baas became Deputy Leader of the Imperial Conservative Party, becoming a notable figure in the rightist dominated Imperial Advisory Council, making allies of many Libertarian Party members who supported his democratic reforms and more lenient social policy, seeing him rise to the position of Minister of Finance in the Haasbaai Ministry, before being removed in the 2020 Cabinet Purge that came after Libertarian and Loyalist figures in the Cabinet, including Baas, became critical of the Oostereen Ministry that formed under a state of emergency after the assassination of Incumbent IAC Chairman Frederick van Haasbaai.

Baas was summoned to Molebaai to serve as part of the Second Constitutional Convention of Vistaraland, and was granted the role of First Minister of the Interim Government of Vistaraland and Head of the Imperial Conservative Party in December, followed by his election to become the first Prime Minister of the Imperial Vistari Confederation on the 26th of December.
