The Federal Republic of Belarum is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Evan Burke with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 24.346 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastia. The average income tax rate is 24.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belarian economy, worth a remarkable 6,945 trillion euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 285,290 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending billions of euros on a fancy space probe to find a planet that may not even exist, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, and President Evan Burke's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. Crime is totally unknown. Belarum's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Belarum is ranked 164,971st in the world and 30th in The European Union for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -20.33 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
