The Glorious Republic of Belands is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.486 billion Belandsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empyreus. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belandsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,058 trillion Belds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 163,171 Belds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

It's often raining men (hallelujah) in Empyreus, a bureaucratic fight over BIA cafeteria food expenditures has caused the temporary suspension of all agency counterintelligence operations, police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, and suburban families are finding themselves increasingly short on food as they waste precious water on their lawns. Crime is totally unknown. Belands's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Belands is ranked 187,737th in the world and 209th in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.23 Weapons Per Person.
