The Allied States of Bergenu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Griffen with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 26.726 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.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bergenu City. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Bergenuan economy, worth a remarkable 1,802 trillion bergs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 67,445 bergs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, and historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism. 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 12,799th in the world and 371st in the South Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 81.66 Effective Tax Rate.
