The Cantankerous Curmudgeon of Belschaft is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by James Lambert with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 26.549 billion Belschaftians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New London. The average income tax rate is 2.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Belschaftian economy, worth a remarkable 6,233 trillion Federal Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 234,794 Federal Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Public intoxication has decreased ever since fraternities were banned, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', vaccinations are mandatory, and movie references are legally admissible in court. Crime is totally unknown. Belschaft's national animal is the Evil Unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Belschaft is ranked 13,819th in the world and 242nd in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 1,195.36411691092 Days.
