Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Belarum is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Evan Burke with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 22.723 billion Belarians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, 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 1.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belarian economy, worth a remarkable 6,215 trillion euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 273,541 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Bastia to enjoy their national art. Crime is totally unknown. Belarum's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Belarum is ranked 178,740th in the world and 95th in European Union for Most Avoided, scoring 0.25 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
