The Democratic Republic of Beturn is a huge, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 734 million Beturnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siloam Springs. The average income tax rate is 41.7%.

The powerhouse Beturnian economy, worth 75.2 trillion Pesos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,464 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation, promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, and a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Beturn's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Beturn is ranked 116,281st in the world and 71st in The Social Liberal Union for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 960.09 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
