Empire of Beldemark

Population568 million


AnimalArctic Bear

The Empire of Empire of Beldemark is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 568 million Beldemarkians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized 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 57.3%.

The all-consuming Beldemarkian economy, worth 66.7 trillion Marlics a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 117,349 Marlics, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Engaged partners detail their fiancés' private lives in detail to prurient bureaucrats, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Arctic Bear Dung" has been declared a national treasure, the legislature keeps promising "more study" of corruption allegations against the parliamentary whip system, and moonshine has made a resurgence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Empire of Beldemark's national animal is the Arctic Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Empire of Beldemark is ranked 153,448th in the world and 6,070th in the Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 11.69 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
