The Protectorate of The Beatus is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Him with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.475 billion The Beatusians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of the Blessed. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, a recent law has banned homes from having any more than one wheel, the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, and The Beatus's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses. Crime is crippling. The Beatus's national animal is the Leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is LA, and its currency is the Dollar.

The Beatus is ranked 134th in the Rejected Realms and 2,506th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 194 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
