The Conservative Paradise of Billtonland is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, prohibition of alcohol, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 917 million Billtonlandians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greenville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Billtonlandian economy, worth 103 trillion fortoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 112,513 fortoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 352,284 per year while the poor average 27,553, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

Door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, the moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP, and government officials are held to the highest standard of morality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Billtonland's national animal is the squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Billtonland is ranked 30,795th in the world and 109th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Developed, scoring 66.21 on the Human Development Index.
