The Democratic Republic of Belgerundivania is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 477 million Belgerundivanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Belgerundivanian economy, worth 17.7 trillion Shackrams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. Average income is 37,104 Shackrams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Geosynchronous satellites are now manned by unpaid interns, cars have been banned, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, and Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belgerundivania's national animal is the Kakapo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Belgerundivania is ranked 10,465th in the world and 312th in the West Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 77.89 Workforce Participation Rate.
