The Federation of Belgaam is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.975 billion Belgaamians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Belgaamian economy, worth 414 trillion Fanoas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 104,373 Fanoas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, a sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers, hospitals in Belgaam are too busy serving the needs of League of Constructed Languages to see Belgaamians, and children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belgaam's national animal is the Pinklinkas, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Belgaam is ranked 34,164th in the world and 5th in League of Constructed Languages for Highest Economic Output, with 414 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
