The Pioneers of Bela1975 is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Servant of the Almighty with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, ban on automobiles, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 7.47 billion Belans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The relatively small, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Environment, although Education and Law & Order are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vila Chã. The average income tax rate is 16.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Bela1975ian economy, worth 367 trillion Deserets a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 49,218 Deserets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Astronomers are flocking to Bela1975 to take advantage of its clear night skies, the act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing', the universal wage level is set by dividing GDP by the number of citizens, and shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bela1975's national animal is the Rocky Mountain Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mormonism.

Bela1975 is ranked 206,749th in the world and 6,556th in the Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -34.21 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
