Belle Ilse en Terre

Population7.238 billion

LeaderKing George II


The Confederate Monarchy of Belle Ilse en Terre is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King George II with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 7.238 billion Ilsans are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ost-in-Edhil. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The all-consuming Ilsan economy, worth a remarkable 1,130 trillion Livres a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 156,150 Livres, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 843,816 per year while the poor average 14,967, a ratio of 56.4 to 1.

Jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies, sales of superhero insurance have skyrocketed after the government abandoned the police in favor of vigilantes, favourite sermons have replaced campfire horror stories on teenage wilderness trips, and guns don't kill people — heroes do. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Belle Ilse en Terre's national animal is the Stag, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Belle Ilse en Terre is ranked 1,324th in the world and 2nd in The Western Isles for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 20,899.37 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
