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 barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.566 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, pro-business 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 1.4%.

The all-consuming Ilsan economy, worth 847 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 152,259 Livres, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 709,012 per year while the poor average 19,611, a ratio of 36.2 to 1.

Acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau'. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 46,830th in the world and 89th in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,732.68 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
