The Confederation of Bellcon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Harper Armstrong with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.065 billion Bellconians 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 Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Surrell. The average income tax rate is 40.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Bellconian economy, worth 258 trillion bells a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 125,196 bells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Children seem to be getting better at lying these days, nine-year-olds' chat logs are scoured for evidence of radicalization, labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, and airport security is provided by private companies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bellcon's national animal is the Bellconian Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tacoism.

Bellcon is ranked 158,877th in the world and 745th in Europeia for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5.66 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
