The Blessed Realm of Bettia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hanabi Brooks with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, prohibition of alcohol, and complete lack of public education. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.756 billion Bettians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Environment and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gabalfa. The average income tax rate is 85.1%.

The large but stagnant Bettian economy, worth 880 trillion Groats a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,457 Groats, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is compulsory, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, it is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs, and there is a dearth of space for new houses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Bettia's national animal is the Arora, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Islam.

Bettia is ranked 4th in Atlantian Oceania and 2,522nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 313 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
