The Absolute Monarchy of Belgium States is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Ferdinand II von Hohenstaufen with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.431 billion Flemish are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brussels. The average income tax rate is 91.2%.

The powerhouse Flemish economy, worth a remarkable 1,659 trillion Lerion Dineroes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,196 Lerion Dineroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Flemish language, Propaganda and Partisanship 101 is a required class all political candidates must pass before being nominated by their chosen party, the nation's entire cultural heritage is being auctioned off to the rich, and the military's primary weapons are fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, and a fanatical devotion to Christianity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Belgium States's national animal is the White Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Belgium States is ranked 7,229th in the world and 5th in New Western Atlantic for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 91.23 Effective Tax Rate.
