The Protectorate of The Beatus is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Maripgan Go-Han Seokhwan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.895 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, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 7,782 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 325,697 Parhean Tongboes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,037,351 per year while the poor average 3,098, a ratio of 980 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.

The Beatus is ranked 53,945th in the world and 1,851st in Osiris for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3,528.39 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
