The United Socialist States of Berlanto is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Consatantine with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 5.787 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, 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 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Berlantoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,045 trillion Bertoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 180,688 Bertoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, the dartboard at the Berlantoan Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of President Consatantine's face, and Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Berlanto. Crime 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 467th in the world and 13th in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 22,188.77 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
