The Federal Republic of Belarum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Evan Burke with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 31.158 billion Belarians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastia. The average income tax rate is 65.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belarian economy, worth a remarkable 8,782 trillion euros a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 281,884 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, and older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road. Crime is totally unknown. Belarum's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Belarum is ranked 3,260th in the world and 6th in European Union for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 16,689.17 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
