The Federal Republic of Belfin is a very large, pleasant nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 122 million Belfinians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.

The Belfinian economy, worth 8.55 trillion Simbas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 70,107 Simbas, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, and young girls often attend the same schools as their children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belfin's national animal is the Chow chow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Belfin is ranked 136,449th in the world and 91st in The United Empires of Carson for Most Pacifist, with 11.07 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
