The Representative Democracy of Bethania is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 714 million Bethanians 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, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyto. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Bethanian economy, worth 47.9 trillion Florens a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,030 Florens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, and a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bethania's national animal is the Great Horned Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bethania is ranked 10,055th in the world and 144th in Europeia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.41 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
