The Federal Republic of Belarum is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Evan Burke with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 31.575 billion Belarians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastia. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belarian economy, worth a remarkable 8,852 trillion euros a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 280,375 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cars have been banned, money grows on trees, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums. Crime is totally unknown. Belarum's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Belarum is ranked 1,000th in the world and 3rd in European Union for Most Developed, scoring 98.33 on the Human Development Index.
