The Allied States of Bergenu is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Vero with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 16.477 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Bergenuan economy, worth 782 trillion bergs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 47,483 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.
Bergenu is ranked 4,085th in the South Pacific and 107,348th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 30 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
