The Germanic Democracy of Belned is a massive, genial nation, ruled by None with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate population of 4.524 billion Belnedians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New-Antwerp. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belnedian economy, worth 597 trillion Crown franks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,070 Crown franks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The best defense is a good fence, a flood of mandatory divorces burden the courts, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and women give birth underneath so many blankets that the doctor can't feel the bump. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belned's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unreligious.

Belned is ranked 38,161st in the world and 11th in Saeculum Obscurum for Most Income Equality, scoring 66.33 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
