|Capital||New Yorkshire City|
The United Socialist States of Berlanto is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Consatantine with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, humorless population of 4.544 billion Berlantoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Yorkshire City. The average income tax rate is 61.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Berlantoan economy, worth 742 trillion Bertoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,381 Bertoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, private businesses are paving paradises to put up parking lots, and the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy. 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.
