The Empire of Beriwen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Cordelia Scott with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.434 billion Beriwenians 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, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siville. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Beriwenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,770 trillion Beriens a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 222,783 Beriens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

"It was only a joke" is no longer a defense for the felony of discrimination, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beriwen's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheran Christianity.

Beriwen is ranked 182,010th in the world and 671st in Europeia for Highest Drug Use, scoring 36.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
