The Some Sort Of Republic of Bymaria is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Felix Asriel with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 8.036 billion Bymarians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karwendel. The average income tax rate is 56.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bymarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,071 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,352 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, cowboys often wear wolfskin jackets to the saloon, and a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bymaria's national animal is the Otter, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bymaria is ranked 238,908th in the world and 4th in Londinium for Rudest Citizens, with 7.27 Insults Per Minute.
