Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Cantankerous Curmudgeon of Belschaft is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by James Lambert with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 18.967 billion Belschaftians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Belschaftian economy, worth a remarkable 4,511 trillion Federal Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 237,868 Federal Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, public intoxication has decreased ever since fraternities were banned, and citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature'. Crime is totally unknown. Belschaft's national animal is the Evil Unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Belschaft is ranked 88,554th in the world and 3,739th in the South Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 131.18 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
