The Allied States of Bergenu is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Vero with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.237 billion Bergenuans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bergenu City. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Bergenuan economy, worth 745 trillion bergs a year, is driven entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 48,941 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.
