The Craggy Hills of Belmoren is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Wesley Torensson with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.521 billion Belmorenites love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ardmore. The average income tax rate is 84.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Belmorenian economy, worth 594 trillion kroner a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,003 kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vaccinations are mandatory, carefully-staged grief is displayed by Wesley Torensson after national disasters, sex changes are routinely performed at Belmoren's hospitals, and Wesley Torensson panders to nontraditional families. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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.

Belmoren is ranked 1,995th in the world and 158th in Europe for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 111 valid endorsements.
