The United Nation of Beshmakas is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Lynch with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.074 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.

The large government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stadt der Küste. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.9%.

The all-consuming Beshmakian economy, worth 787 trillion Beshmakian dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 97,522 Beshmakian dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Beshmakas Blood Tithe, bicyclists are banned from major roads, military spending is on the increase, 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Beshmakas is ranked 1st in Nearth and 56,739th in the world for Most Devout, scoring 12 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
