The United Queendoms of Belantica is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Karen with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.35 billion Belanticans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Center City. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belantic economy, worth a remarkable 1,324 trillion Mons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,236 Mons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, Belanticans refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, and Queen Karen's Twitcher account is typically used to share Black-chested Buzzard Eagle memes rather than government policy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belantica's national animal is the Black-chested Buzzard Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Belantica is ranked 13,493rd in the world and 23rd in The Western Isles for Most Armed, with 5.46 Weapons Per Person.
