The Dirty Cheats of Northern Bettia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Cutey Snugglekins with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.617 billion Gogs are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viagra. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Northern Bettian economy, worth a remarkable 5,881 trillion Groats a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 299,812 Groats, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,228,604 per year while the poor average 11,932, a ratio of 186 to 1.
Mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country, most academic research has ground to a halt, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, and otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Northern Bettia's national animal is the Hello Kitty, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Voodoo.
