The Federation of Belfras is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Sovereign Prince Nicholaus with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 20.74 billion Belfrasians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thessalona. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Belfrasian economy, worth 770 trillion Belfrasian Lire a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,138 Belfrasian Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and students cut up leftover Belfrasian Liras during Arts and Crafts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belfras's national animal is the Brown-coat Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fabrian Catholicism.

Belfras is ranked 109,663rd in the world and 22nd in Ajax for Most Pro-Market, scoring 33.4 on the Rand Index.
