The United French Communes of Belnegon Francia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 576 million French are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belnegon. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Belnegon Francian economy, worth 16.6 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 28,762 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, an underground movement of cigarette smokers has sprung up in response to a government ban, and intelligence agencies frequently invite passers-by into their secret vaults for tea and biscuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belnegon Francia's national animal is the Frankish Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Belnegon Francia is ranked 121,612th in the world and 18th in Imperial Entente for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -3.46 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
