The Republic of Besen is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Nina Roeal with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.792 billion Besenians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lipa. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Besenian economy, worth 225 trillion Risas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,943 Risas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest superhero movie features a caped Grey Wolf with adamantium claws, the fattest folk in Besen look to be the happiest ones, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Besen's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheist.

Besen is ranked 203,380th in the world and 5,989th in Balder for Most Primitive, scoring -114.87 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
