The Federal Republic of Belarum is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Evan Burke with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 19.321 billion Belarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastia. The average income tax rate is 43%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, graffiti graces every city's streets, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belarum's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the euro.

Belarum is ranked 37th in European Union and 25,250th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 70 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
