The Socialist State of Bej is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Boris Karlof with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, otherworldly petting zoo, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.371 billion Bejians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beki. The average income tax rate is 70.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Bejian economy, worth 237 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 172,892 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

School children are forced to sing the national anthem every morning, a light facial coating of soot is seen as the mark of an honest and hardworking man, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bej's national animal is the crocodile, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The church of Borism.

Bej is ranked 31,496th in the world and 3rd in North Legion for Most Developed, scoring 65.96 on the Human Development Index.
