The Empire of Berhakonia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Janius XIV Chrysostom with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.613 billion Berhakli are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stannismarck. The average income tax rate is 75.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Berhakonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,880 trillion Gold Stenmars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 435,609 Gold Stenmars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers', pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Berhakonia's national animal is the Iron Coast Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Berhakonian Orthodox Church.

Berhakonia is ranked 5,100th in the world and 1st in Berhakonian Realm for Highest Economic Output, with 2,880 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
