The United Kingdom of Belnades is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Belgarath and Montjoy with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.714 billion Belnades are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ishmall. The average income tax rate is 39.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Belnavior economy, worth 108 trillion Usal Beams a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,570 Usal Beams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

School history books often refer to Belgarath and Montjoy as "that imperialist pig dog", the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belnades's national animal is the Darling, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Jeez.

Belnades is ranked 142,557th in the world and 69th in Yuno for Most Pro-Market, scoring 32.5 on the Rand Index.
