Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Belarum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Evan Burke with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 21.094 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 receive no funds. 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 5,510 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 261,251 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Belarian Embarrassments, prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, the legislature keeps promising "more study" of corruption allegations against the parliamentary whip system, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. 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 253rd in the world and 3rd in European Union for Most Developed, scoring 97.56 on the Human Development Index.
