The Kingdom of Bej is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Olegovich with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.153 billion Bejians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beki. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Bejian economy, worth 597 trillion Bejis a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 277,363 Bejis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,048,082 per year while the poor average 11,315, a ratio of 181 to 1.

Preservative-laden Bejian cheeses will be as edible when archaeologists dig them up next millennium, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bej's national animal is the Bejian crocodile, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The church of Borism.

Bej is ranked 1,875th in the world and 2nd in The West Pole for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 242.92 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
