The Federal Republic of Besmenien is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.137 billion Besmenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laitstadt. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Besmenienian economy, worth 235 trillion Speroes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,216 Speroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, and children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Besmenien's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Besmenien is ranked 35,372nd in the world and 15th in Coalition of Crown Albatross for Lowest Crime Rates, with 73.23 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
