The Empire of Besancia is a huge, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 656 million Besancians 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 large 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 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Besancian economy, worth 62.0 trillion Roenars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,533 Roenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, political hopefuls must announce their intentions decades in advance to accommodate extensive background checks, the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Besancians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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.

Besancia is ranked 44,879th in the world and 92nd in Thaecia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,973.51 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
