The United Socialist States of Berlanto is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Consatantine with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 6.361 billion Berlantoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small 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 35.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Berlantoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,128 trillion Bertoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 177,446 Bertoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Berlanto's radio stations, international tensions are high as Berlanto threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Berlanto's national animal is the Menator, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Berlanto is ranked 32,330th in the world and 1,488th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 221,891.04 Standard Monetary Units.
