The Republic of Beirut City is a colossal, economically powerful nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.767 billion Beirut Cityians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beirut City City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.7%.

The powerhouse Beirut Cityian economy, worth 507 trillion Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 87,924 Lire, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government snoops on private internet connections, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, highschool principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beirut City's national animal is the Birds, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Beirut City is ranked 27th in Middle East and 39,943rd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.553 Stalins.
