The Federal Republic of Belschaft is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by James Lambert with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.018 billion live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Book Publishing.

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, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belschaft's national animal is the Belschaft Crested Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Federal Pound.

Belschaft is ranked 18th in the South Pacific and 1,662nd in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 12 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
