The Beauty Land of Bilsa is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bolbon with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.651 billion Bists are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Environment, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ccims. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Bist economy, worth a remarkable 1,199 trillion Bists a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 138,667 Bists, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 762,896 per year while the poor average 12,785, a ratio of 59.7 to 1.

Children entertain themselves by throwing rocks through the windows of world-class museums, the government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, and a shout of "stop in the name of the law!" is more of a request than an order. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bilsa's national animal is the Bubu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sun.

Bilsa is ranked 202,963rd in the world and 411th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -22.45 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
