The Glorious Republic of Belands is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Premier Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.199 billion Belandsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empyreus. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belandsian economy, worth 992 trillion Belds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 160,163 Belds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

A favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, "Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, and invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Belands's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Belands is ranked 15,285th in the world and 49th in Spiritus for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,643.71 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
