The Federal Republic of Belarum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Evan Burke with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 29.935 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, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment 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 53.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belarian economy, worth a remarkable 8,552 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 285,688 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When shaking hands with foreign leaders President Evan Burke wears an armoured gauntlet, nations that kill a Belarian can expect a strongly worded letter, a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, and there's no representation without taxation. Crime is totally unknown. Belarum's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Belarum is ranked 156,895th in the world and 135th in European Union for Most Pro-Market, scoring 23.11 on the Rand Index.
