The Allied States of Bergenu is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Vero with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed population of 15.75 billion Bergenuans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bergenu City. The average income tax rate is 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but inefficient Bergenuan economy, worth 594 trillion bergs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 37,760 bergs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and Bergenu has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bergenu's national animal is the Southern Pygmy Pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
