The Intergalactic Alliance of Betelgeuse Alliance is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Roger A with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.484 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, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Betelgeuse City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Betelgeuse Alliancean economy, worth 625 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 impressive 179,463 Betels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 589,497 per year while the poor average 40,972, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

Wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, being Roger A has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, and court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs. 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 7,378th in the world and 2nd in RGBN for Healthiest Citizens, with 15.58 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
