Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Belarum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Evan Burke with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 21.274 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.

The tiny government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Belarian economy, worth a remarkable 5,578 trillion euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 262,200 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, and the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Belarum's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Belarum is ranked 31,086th in the world and 44th in European Union for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,111.55 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
