The Socialist Empire of Belka United is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Monika Rald with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 969 million Belkans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dinsmark. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belkan economy, worth 145 trillion Dollarydoos 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 black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 150,309 Dollarydoos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel, elite teams of assassins have been sent into Brasilistan, 'Coloniser-in-Chief' has become Empress Monika Rald's new moniker, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belka United's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Belka United is ranked 153,762nd in the world and 6th in Global Confederation of Nations Region for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 335.32 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
