The Vandoosa of Bella is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 7.302 billion Bellans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 54.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Bellan economy, worth 244 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 33,492 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary, military spending recently hit a new high, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bella's national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bella is ranked 75,135th in the world and 11th in Money Brokers for Highest Poor Incomes, with 28,035.42 Standard Monetary Units.
