The Empire of Bescherelle is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Alexandre Bonaparte with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.988 billion Bescherelleans 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Héra. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bescherellean economy, worth a remarkable 1,867 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 169,924 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting district maps are said to resemble a tyrannosaurus eating the capital, Alexandre Bonaparte has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances, soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, and foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Bescherelle will pay them to stop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bescherelle's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bescherelle is ranked 5,205th in the world and 84th in Europe for Highest Poor Incomes, with 132,163.7 Standard Monetary Units.
