The Federation of Betasia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the President of the Federation with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.889 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 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Betasian economy, worth 128 trillion Betasian Francs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 67,805 Betasian Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, children grow up long before the paperwork for their lemonade stands can be sorted out, and local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities. 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 19,169th in the world and 278th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 7,492.54 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
