Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Berlanto is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Consatantine with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, national health service, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless population of 3.253 billion Berlantoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Yorkshire City. The average income tax rate is 39.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Berlantoan economy, worth 465 trillion Bertoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 143,058 Bertoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, farmers are struggling to keep up with demand for local produce, and the election for President Consatantine's office's janitor is heating up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Berlanto's national animal is the Menator, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Berlanto is ranked 141,970th in the world and 7,089th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
