The Republic of Berikasa is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, strictly enforced bedtime, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 813 million Berikasans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rika. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Berikasan economy, worth 82.3 trillion Berias a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,184 Berias, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, only a minority of the population can actually vote at elections, and the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Berikasa's national animal is the Whale Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Berikasa is ranked 163,687th in the world and 8,517th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -18.92 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
