The Angelus Vox Populi of BeaconFlat is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Avakael with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.059 billion BeaconFlatians 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Direshield. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The frighteningly efficient BeaconFlatian economy, worth a remarkable 2,940 trillion Halicarnassuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 122,227 Halicarnassuses, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 488,473 per year while the poor average 20,553, a ratio of 23.8 to 1.

The BeaconFlat Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over BeaconFlat, and the nation leads Ordo Imperialia in per capita stalking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. BeaconFlat's national animal is the White Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Hope.

BeaconFlat is ranked 31,448th in the world and 22nd in Ordo Imperialia for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 3,979.88 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
