The Federal Soviet Republic of Bewhua is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Speaker Nikodin with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 6.982 billion Bewhuns are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kogariysk. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Bewhun economy, worth a remarkable 1,620 trillion falms 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, 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 232,054 falms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

An aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, and helping grandma with her Misgendering 101 homework is a national rite of passage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bewhua's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bewhua is ranked 5,464th in the world and 21st in Enadia for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 11,213.07 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
