The United Nation of Beshmakas is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Lynch with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed population of 6.517 billion 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 Viechstan. The average income tax rate is 46%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing.
Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, and protests are legal but strictly supervised. 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.
