OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federal Republic of Belarum is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Evan Burke with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 18.863 billion Belarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 42%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Euthanasia is legal, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, and prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects. 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 4th in European Union and 722nd in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 57 on the Enoch Index.
