The Holy Empire of Berhakonia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Janius XIV Chrysostom with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.347 billion Berhakli are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stannismarck. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Berhakonian economy, worth 764 trillion Gold Stenmars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 228,321 Gold Stenmars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 774,054 per year while the poor average 49,728, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

Surveillance cameras are banned, people across the world seek to be healthier by eliminating carbs, creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs, and the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Berhakonia's national animal is the Iron Coast Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodox Church of Berhakonia.

Berhakonia is ranked 32,876th in the world and 1st in The Chill Islands for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,976.13 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
