The Everlasting Empire of Bej is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Maria with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.002 billion Bejians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beki. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Bejian economy, worth 681 trillion Bejis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 227,181 Bejis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,862,554 per year while the poor average 5,877, a ratio of 316 to 1.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, robotic spouses prove to be just as imperfect as flesh and blood ones, foreign nationals are widely distrusted, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bej's national animal is the Bejian crocodile, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The church of Borism.

Bej is ranked 43,698th in the world and 7th in The West Pole for Most Developed, scoring 66.27 on the Human Development Index.
