|Capital||New Yorkshire City|
The United Socialist States of Berlanto is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Consatantine with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 4.939 billion Berlantoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The relatively small, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Yorkshire City. The average income tax rate is 35.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Berlantoan economy, worth 778 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 common. Average income is an impressive 157,677 Bertoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The constant playing of Merry Birthday on Berlantoan radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, Berlantoan athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, Berlantoan police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, and the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Berlanto's national animal is the Menator, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
