The People's Republic of Behated is a small, socially progressive nation, renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 32 million Behatedians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 36.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The basket case Behatedian economy, worth 373 billion Behat dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 11,659 Behat dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, all the playground's a stage for Behatedian schoolchildren, and the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Behated's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Behated is ranked 188,844th in the world and 5,593rd in the Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 24.09 Insults Per Minute.
