The Island Republic of Belililou is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Temmi Schmull with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, democratic population of 35.038 billion Belililouans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ngerulmud. The average income tax rate is 14.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Belililouan economy, worth a remarkable 5,134 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 146,551 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Televisions are often seized to pay for overdue television license fees, Belililouan athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, and tardiness has increased after carpooling was classified as a criminal offense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Belililou's national animal is the dugong, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Belililou is ranked 115,081st in the world and 3,044th in the West Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 460.18 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
