The Empire of BeatsMe is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Wise Father of the Land with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.598 billion Bīters 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bjutifule. The average income tax rate is 9.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Bīterland economy, worth 300 trillion Eiroes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 188,234 Eiroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The Navy has outraged the international community by sinking a boatload of refugees to prevent them reaching the shore, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in BeatsMe, mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, and the carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. BeatsMe's national animal is the AniMal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is True Belief.

BeatsMe is ranked 61,387th in the world and 67th in Sonindia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 51.67 on the Rand Index.
