The Confederacy of Betler is a very large, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 177 million Betlerians 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 42.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Betlerian economy, worth 4.78 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,020 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths, and urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Betler's national animal is the beaver, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Betler is ranked 49,497th in the world and 34th in Wysteria for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,025.07 tourists per hour.
