The Federal Republic of Belschaft is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by James Lambert with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 15.367 billion Belschaftians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New London. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Belschaftian economy, worth a remarkable 3,616 trillion Federal Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 235,361 Federal Pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,071,135 per year while the poor average 31,615, a ratio of 33.9 to 1.
A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, and the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means. Crime is totally unknown. Belschaft's national animal is the Belschaft Crested Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
