Bastar is one of the Indian princily states. It lies in central India bordering Nagpur. It is a puppet of United Kingdom and therefore it cannot engage in war on its own. That makes it hard to westernize as conquest is usually the most effective way to westernize. If the country is controlled by the AI, it can be annexed by the event The Doctrine of Lapse. There is not anything the country can do to prevent it, but luckily it cannot happen to the player.
