The Glorious Republic of Belands is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Premier Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.673 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 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belandsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,086 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 162,747 Belds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, public toilets are famed for their rear entries, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Belands's radio stations. Crime 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 16,946th in the world and 47th in Spiritus for Highest Economic Output, with 1,086 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
