The Kingdom of Beausylvana is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 927 million Beausylvanesks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Wolfsburg. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Beausylvanan economy, worth 79.7 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,980 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, and turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beausylvana's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Beausylvana is ranked 15,860th in the world and 412th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,641.51 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
