The United Nation of Beshmakas is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Lynch with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 10.393 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 medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stadt der Küste. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.2%.
The powerhouse Beshmakian economy, worth a remarkable 1,123 trillion Beshmakian dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 108,080 Beshmakian dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.
The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, and priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.
