The Blessed Republic of Bjeorg is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Arch-Bishop Paul V with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.584 billion Bjeorites are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, although Defense and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jonestown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.2%.

The very strong Bjeorgian economy, worth 247 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. Average income is 69,018 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 364,470 per year while the poor average 6,945, a ratio of 52.5 to 1.

Churches across the land are hurriedly installing auto-tune for their choirs, citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, the Federal Council of Bjeorg has been announced as the new Head of State, and Christianity has been named as Bjeorg's national religion. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Bjeorg's national animal is the Trout and its national religion is Christianity.

Bjeorg is ranked 17,309th in the world and 10th in International Democratic Union for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,671.07 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
