Belle Ilse en Terre

Population5.211 billion

LeaderKing George II


The Confederate Monarchy of Belle Ilse en Terre is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King George II with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.211 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 Defense, Spirituality, 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 793 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 152,200 Livres, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 767,501 per year while the poor average 16,826, a ratio of 45.6 to 1.

People who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, museum employees look down on short people, global anti-terrorist organisations strongly suspect Belle Ilse en Terre of supplying extremist groups, and a The Western Isles Tourist Association survey has rated Belle Ilse en Terre #1 for number twos. 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 15,286th in the world and 34th in The Western Isles for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 77.21 Workforce Participation Rate.
