The Island Republic of Belililou is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Temmi Schmull with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 42.67 billion Belililouans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ngerulmud. The average income tax rate is 13.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Belililouan economy, worth a remarkable 6,356 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 148,960 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, business owners who refuse to hire ex-cons often wake up with a dugong's head in their bed, attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, and some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Belililou's national animal is the dugong, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Belililou is ranked 29,814th in the world and 692nd in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 82.84 law-abiding acts per hour.
