The Allied States of Bergenu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Vero with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 18.292 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 Healthcare, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bergenu City. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Bergenuan economy, worth a remarkable 1,038 trillion bergs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is 56,769 bergs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, the armed forces have designated 'murder teams' that root out rebels in Brasilistan, captured Brasilistani POWs are staying in 5-star hotels, and CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears. 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.
