The United Socialist States of Berlanto is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Consatantine with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless population of 3.64 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Yorkshire City. The average income tax rate is 50.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Berlantoan economy, worth 555 trillion Bertoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 152,620 Bertoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
Berlantoans incessantly needle their doctors for relief, a punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. 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.
