The Federal Republic of Belarum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Evan Burke with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 19.499 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 Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastia. The average income tax rate is 44%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, graffiti graces every city's streets, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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 2nd in European Union and 527th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 21 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
