The Grand Holy Empire of Bestelesnia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Emperor with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.825 billion Bestelesnians 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holy Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bestelesnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,249 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 183,045 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, the nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, sports club owners are having a moneyball, and the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bestelesnia's national animal is the Great bestelesnian falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Imperial Force Church.

Bestelesnia is ranked 39,059th in the world and 2,093rd in Balder for Most Beautiful Environments, with 719.05 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
