The Kleptocratic Republic of Beauprix is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Bank of Beauprix with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.493 billion Beaupri are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rouveaux. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Beauprix economy, worth a remarkable 1,053 trillion Francs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 301,486 Francs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,803,231 per year while the poor average 2,975, a ratio of 942 to 1.

The government is eagerly awaiting a multi-million Franc payment from a deposed Smalltopian monarch, disaster victims are viewed with disdain, psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, and textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Beauprix's national animal is the Spanish Dancer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Beauprix is ranked 177,501st in the world and 1,148th in Europe for Most Income Equality, scoring 0.11 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
