The Empire of Besancia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Alexander with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.504 billion Besancians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sakobe. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Besancian economy, worth 328 trillion Roenars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,366 Roenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, bicyclists are banned from major roads, many politicians are in rehab for minor drug offenses, and military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Besancia's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
