The Intergalactic Alliance of Betelgeuse Alliance is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Roger A with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 5.375 billion Betelgeusians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Betelgeuse City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Betelgeuse Alliancean economy, worth a remarkable 1,085 trillion Betels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 202,009 Betels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 718,853 per year while the poor average 40,870, a ratio of 17.6 to 1.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Betelgeuse Alliancean weed picker are way up, and a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Betelgeuse Alliance's national animal is the YEET, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Betelgeuse Alliance is ranked 3,232nd in the world and 2nd in RGBN for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 20,912.7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
