The United Nation of Beshmakas is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Lynch with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 11.244 billion Beshmakians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stadt der Küste. The average income tax rate is 19.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Beshmakian economy, worth a remarkable 1,267 trillion Beshmakian dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,705 Beshmakian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

A small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, it is a crime to operate a combine harvester while intoxicated, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beshmakas's national animal is the Makas Bobcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Beshmakas is ranked 48,469th in the world and 1st in WPO for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 98.1 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
