The Allied States of Bergenu is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Griffen with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 27.958 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 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Bergenuan economy, worth a remarkable 2,045 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 73,152 bergs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers. 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 92,459th in the world and 3,340th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 72.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
