The Democratic People's Republic of Beatesia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Fleet Admiral Nicholas Millett with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, national health service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.688 billion Beatesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Public Transport, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beatesgrad. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Beatesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,094 trillion Shillings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 350,354 Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When shaking hands with foreign leaders Fleet Admiral Nicholas Millett wears an armoured gauntlet, police nightsticks see use all day long, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Beatesia's national animal is the Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Worker's Party of Beatesia.

Beatesia is ranked 31,144th in the world and 1,354th in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 961 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
