The Allied States of Bergenu is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Griffen with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 24.299 billion Bergenuans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bergenu City. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Bergenuan economy, worth a remarkable 1,570 trillion bergs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 64,650 bergs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Good looking soldier boys have celebrity status amongst the nation's homosexuals, both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, and antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bergenu's national animal is the Southern Pygmy Pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bergenu is ranked 157,089th in the world and 6,145th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -16.55 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
