The Empire of Beriwen is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Cordelia Scott with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.519 billion Beriwenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siville. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Beriwenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,472 trillion Beriens a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 214,619 Beriens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, tipsy fans frequently invite themselves to the board meetings of sports clubs, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beriwen's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheran Christianity.

Beriwen is ranked 739th in the world and 6th in Europeia for Largest Governments, scoring 65.78 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
