The United Nation of Beshmakas is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Lynch with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 7.131 billion Beshmakians 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 is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stadt der Küste. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Referenda are held for every conceivable government action, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Stadt der Küste Times is sold out. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beshmakas's national animal is the Makas Bobcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Beshmakian dollar.

Beshmakas is ranked 147th in World Alliance and 85,435th in the world for Best Weather, with -9 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
