The Corporatocratic Monarchy of Betmet is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.607 billion Betmetians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jenniver Luch. The average income tax rate is 66.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Betmetian economy, worth 947 trillion Betmetian Ridgers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 124,497 Betmetian Ridgers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, passengers often cause a stink on public transport, it is said that a Betmetian woman's work is never done, and people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned. Crime is totally unknown. Betmet's national animal is the Betmetian Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Betmet is ranked 67,807th in the world and 2nd in Betmet for Most Extreme, scoring 23.23 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
