The Empire of Befiehl is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Shima with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.86 billion Befiehlians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nucleus. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Befiehlian economy, worth 200 trillion Kyloes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 107,945 Kyloes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, it is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away", EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Befiehl's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Shimaism.

Befiehl is ranked 170,630th in the world and 4,126th in the West Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -2.53 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
