The Eternal Serene Republic of Beiluxia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by His Eternal President Mister Smiles with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.213 billion Beiluxians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lovers-by-the-bay. The average income tax rate is 58.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Beiluxian economy, worth a remarkable 2,738 trillion Smileyfaces a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,074 Smileyfaces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Beiluxian satellites can detect it, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, and movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens. Crime is totally unknown. Beiluxia's national animal is the Happy-Panda-Bear-Sunshine, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Beiluxia is ranked 17,308th in the world and 183rd in 10000 Islands for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,195.77 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
