The Failed State of Believeland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Henry Chinaski with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 7.29 billion Procrastinators hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abaddon. The average income tax rate is 35.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Deadbeat Morbidlandic economy, worth 918 trillion Dolors a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail.

Dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, truancy levels are on the rise ever since school registers were banned, workers have their fruitcake and eat it too, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions.

Believeland is ranked 35,375th in the world and 3rd in Conservative League for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 4,033.77 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
