The Craggy Hills of Belmoren is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Wesley Torensson with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.781 billion Belmorenites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ardmore. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Belmorenian economy, worth 430 trillion kroner a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,443 kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many aides in Wesley Torensson's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, Wesley Torensson's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, and the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belmoren's national animal is the Potoo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Belmoren is ranked 190,190th in the world and 1,100th in Europe for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 850.16 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
