The Unified Dominion of Berlana is a massive, genial nation, ruled by High Chancellor Hadrian Aurelius IV with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.199 billion Berlanans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potentia. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Berlanan economy, worth 180 trillion title crowns a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 150,827 title crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, the endangered saltwater humpback eagle is only seen in captivity programs, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Berlana's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Berlana is ranked 55,495th in the world and 1,524th in the South Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 198,239 Standard Monetary Units.
