The Federal Monarchy of Bernada is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by High King Belisar IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, daily referendums, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.115 billion Bernadians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bernada City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Bernadan economy, worth 336 trillion Bernadian Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 159,117 Bernadian Francs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 893,032 per year while the poor average 14,038, a ratio of 63.6 to 1.

The environment is gorgeous so long as you're looking up, government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, and politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence. Crime is totally unknown. Bernada's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bernada is ranked 47,166th in the world and 1,283rd in the West Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 3,770.41 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
