The Allied States of Bergenu is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Griffen with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 21.174 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 Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bergenu City. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Bergenuan economy, worth a remarkable 1,320 trillion bergs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 62,345 bergs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, immigrants complain that natives keep coming over and taking their jobs, the 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, and telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm. 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 16,170th in the world and 460th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 67.14 Quips Per Hour.
