The Principality of Bergesen is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.037 billion Bergesenians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blåbyen. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Bergesenian economy, worth 87.5 trillion Kystens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,355 Kystens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, Bergesenian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bergesen's national animal is the Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bergesen is ranked 26,431st in the world and 5th in The Okchi Union for Most Developed, scoring 69.58 on the Human Development Index.
