The Armed Republic of Birat is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 220 million Biratians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.3%.

The strong Biratian economy, worth 11.5 trillion Geldings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 52,353 Geldings, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Birat's national animal is the Lotus.

Birat is ranked 47,052nd in the world and 18th in Greater Dienstad for Most Pro-Market, scoring 61 on the Rand Index.
