The Empire of Betremia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ian Smith with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, parental licensing program, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.407 billion Betremians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salisbury. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Betremian economy, worth 394 trillion Deniers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 163,901 Deniers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 506,857 per year while the poor average 40,862, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.
Homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, private businesses are paving paradises to put up parking lots, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Betremia's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.
