The Federal Republic of Besern is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Atrueue Vischervonda with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.989 billion Besernians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brient. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Besernian economy, worth 380 trillion soners a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 127,453 soners, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, conspiracy theorists allege Brient's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, doctors will keep brain-dead coma patients ventilated for years in order to avoid accusations of allowing people to die, and being Atrueue Vischervonda has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Besern's national animal is the tekreik, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kristi.

Besern is ranked 164,986th in the world and 6,664th in the South Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.9 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
