The United Socialist Hegemony of Beutarch is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the people with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, vat-grown people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 7.763 billion Beutarchians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Epochal. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Beutarchian economy, worth a remarkable 1,827 trillion Rounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 235,435 Rounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bargain-hunting is considered unpatriotic, Beutarchian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, and generals have trouble barking orders over the sound of thundering artillery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beutarch's national animal is the Walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Beutarch is ranked 2,548th in the world and 3rd in The United Ascendancy for Largest Governments, scoring 48.2 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
