The XKI Alkasian Emissary of Beringland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Astrid Wintertide with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.717 billion Beringlandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polaris. The average income tax rate is 58.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Beringlandian economy, worth 177 trillion alaskans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 47,713 alaskans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Beringland has designated Polaris as its capital city, Astrid Wintertide has just been declared ruler of Beringland in an international press conference, military units are often seen arguing over which one is truly favored by the gods, and every week is blindness awareness week. Crime is totally unknown. Beringland's national animal is the panserbjørn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Beringland is ranked 77,762nd in the world and 169th in Wintreath for Most Developed, scoring 53.23 on the Human Development Index.
