The Vereinigte Staaten of Besgaria is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.469 billion Besgarians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frihetsstad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The all-consuming Besgarian economy, worth 172 trillion kassas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 117,535 kassas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 477,517 per year while the poor average 19,231, a ratio of 24.8 to 1.

Doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, Leader has just been declared ruler of Besgaria in an international press conference, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Besgaria's national animal is the griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Besgaria is ranked 69,417th in the world and 36th in APSIA for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 643.71 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
