The Federation of Betasia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by the President of the Federation with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.124 billion Betasians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Betekom Capital Region. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Betasian economy, worth 213 trillion Betasian Francs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,431 Betasian Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Betekom Capital Region Times is sold out, refugees without a PhD are sent back to where they came from, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, and a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Betasia's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Betasia is ranked 14,024th in the world and 234th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 8,941.13 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
