The Germanic Democracy of Belned is a huge, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working population of 611 million 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New-Antwerp. The average income tax rate is 48.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belnedian economy, worth 70.8 trillion Crown franks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 115,882 Crown franks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The police double as repo men, all tariffs have been abolished, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun. 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.

Belned is ranked 166,664th in the world and 137th in 21st Century Rome for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.24 Crimes Per Hour.
