The Republic of Beirut City is a massive, devout nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.416 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Religion & Spirituality are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beirut City City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Arms Manufacturing.

Parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, the government snoops on private internet connections, and sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Beirut City's national animal is the Birds, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Lira.

Beirut City is ranked 4th in Central Pacific Empire and 13,971st in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 8 Whatever.
