The Empire of Befiehl is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Empress Shima with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.748 billion Befiehlians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nucleus. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Befiehlian economy, worth 187 trillion Kyloes 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 major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 107,503 Kyloes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, hand-to-hand combat experience is udderly essential for all dairy ranchers, sometimes a whole prison wing will house a single prisoner, and they say that Befiehlians made a dessert and called it peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Befiehl's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Shimaism.

Befiehl is ranked 12,511th in the world and 266th in the West Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 90.32 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
