The Pioneers of Bela1975 is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Servant of the Almighty with an even hand, and renowned for its feral children, frequent executions, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 8.677 billion Belans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Environment, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vila Chã. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Bela1975ian economy, worth 714 trillion Deserets a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 82,300 Deserets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, a government program is underway to revitalize Bela1975's beaches, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. 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 76,074th in the world and 2,085th in the Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 79.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
