The Collective Republic of Beatrixia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Comrade Beatrice with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.583 billion Beatrixians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beatrixstadt. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Beatrixian economy, worth a remarkable 1,731 trillion Social Exchange Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 263,014 Social Exchange Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, and cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beatrixia's national animal is the Beatrixian Boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Death Acceptance.

Beatrixia is ranked 66,992nd in the world and 1,270th in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
