The Federal Republic of Bietzopolis is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mr Bietz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.654 billion Bietzopolisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bietzburg. The average income tax rate is 38.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Bietzopolisian economy, worth 899 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 193,214 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

A common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", the new one dollar coin also makes a handy throwing-star, burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime is totally unknown. Bietzopolis's national animal is the Hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnostic Atheism.

Bietzopolis is ranked 81,683rd in the world and 148th in New Western Empire for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 38.3 Effective Tax Rate.
