The United Republic of Bering is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by High Director Adem Orlov with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 14.454 billion Bercj enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crnograd. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Berski economy, worth a remarkable 2,146 trillion dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 148,539 dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Crnograd, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bering's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bering is ranked 5,016th in the world and 6th in Confederacy of Allied States for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,441.17 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
