The Drunken Haze of Beery Bliss is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Batman with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 34.552 billion Pissheads are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burton-Upon-Trent. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pissed economy, worth an astonishing 10,162 trillion Pints a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 294,111 Pints, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Passengers often cause a stink on public transport, newly-peaceful nations are forced to use assault rifles as farming tools due to a lack of funds for purchasing anything else, possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, and Pissheads wonder "if a tree falls in the woods with no credible witnesses, who wants to know?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beery Bliss's national animal is the hedgehog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Mass Hysteria.

Beery Bliss is ranked 170,044th in the world and 3rd in Northern Europe for Longest Average Lifespans, with 26.28 Years.
