|Leader||Maripgan Go-Han Seokhwan|
The Protectorate of The Beatus is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Maripgan Go-Han Seokhwan with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.474 billion Parhasques are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Paaoma. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Beatusian economy, worth a remarkable 7,239 trillion Parhean Tongboes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 322,117 Parhean Tongboes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,443,275 per year while the poor average 11,859, a ratio of 206 to 1.
Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, a recent law has banned homes from having any more than one wheel, the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, and The Beatus's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Beatus's national animal is the Parhean Rhinoceros, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Shinkyo.
