The Neo-Socialist State of Beal is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Saint Thomas More with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, digital currency, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.284 billion Beals enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beal City. The average income tax rate is 63.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bealian economy, worth 135 trillion Beals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 105,509 Beals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beal's national animal is the jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Beal is ranked 172,883rd in the world and 171st in Texas for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -12.25 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
