The Federational Kingdom of Berusturg is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sir George Moody II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.044 billion Berusturgens enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bers. The average income tax rate is 60.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Berusturgian economy, worth 89.3 trillion Beruses 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 85,514 Beruses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, the 'sing-a-long with Sir George Moody II' album is a popular souvenir, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Berusturg's national animal is the Turgen Silver Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is None.

Berusturg is ranked 112,499th in the world and 5,139th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,034.43 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
