The Empire of Besancia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Alexander with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 2.166 billion Besancians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sakobe. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Besancian economy, worth 265 trillion Roenars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,804 Roenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Once-vitriolic celebrity chefs are now known for giving encouraging hugs to aspiring cooks, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and extreme political groups are outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Besancia's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Besancia is ranked 203,272nd in the world and 285th in Thaecia for Most Secular, with 13.64 Atheism Rate.
