The Federal Republic of Belschaft is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by James Lambert with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, restrictive gun laws, and museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.685 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 3,483 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 237,240 Federal Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 755,781 per year while the poor average 56,654, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.

Belschaft's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, Belschaft Crested Hawks are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide, university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. 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.

Belschaft is ranked 869th in the South Pacific and 33,184th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 24 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
