The Principality of Belke is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Princess Lanna M Freiweld with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.169 billion Belkens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Diensmerke. The average income tax rate is 36.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belkean economy, worth 149 trillion Tyrs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 128,046 Tyrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Bike rage is all the rage, the nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, most citizens in Belke are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, and Lutheran has been named as Belke's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belke's national animal is the Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lutheran.

Belke is ranked 26,503rd in the world and 11th in The United Federations for Most Average, scoring 48.89 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
