The United Nation of Beshmakas is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Lynch with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 7.087 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 devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Welfare and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stadt der Küste. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40%. 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.

Rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people, citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and religious education is a new government priority. 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 136th in World Alliance and 86,754th in the world for Best Weather, with -11 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
