The Great Northern Nation of Empire of Beldemark is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by William Hartford with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.061 billion Beldemarkians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fviserwinterland. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Beldemarkian economy, worth 127 trillion Marlics a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,464 Marlics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire of Beldemark's national animal is the Arctic Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Deusism.

Empire of Beldemark is ranked 124,619th in the world and 3,815th in the Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 290.52 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
