The Confederacy of Behundy is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 420 million Behundyians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 51.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Behundyian economy, worth 15.6 trillion Stars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,164 Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and banning party poppers has been a real party pooper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Behundy's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Behundy is ranked 94,882nd in the world and 3,458th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 56.17 on the Human Development Index.
