The United Socialist States of Berlanto is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Consatantine with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, humorless population of 3.982 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Yorkshire City. The average income tax rate is 36.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Berlantoan economy, worth 630 trillion Bertoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 158,213 Bertoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls, Harry Potter conventions are closely watched by the government for any signs of 'dueling', traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBB Governor goes house hunting. 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 111,068th in the world and 5,655th in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 43.79 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
