The Federal Republic of Berlitria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mikhail Zayev Vakhrushev with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, devout population of 22.086 billion Berlitrians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lindenberg. The average income tax rate is 88.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Berlitrian economy, worth a remarkable 2,031 trillion Krushes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,981 Krushes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Lindenberg spends billions upgrading public transport, kindergartens are full of kids dressed as superheroes and princesses, burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine, and the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Berlitria's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Berlitria is ranked 11,376th in the world and 260th in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.05 Years.
