The Some Sort Of Republic of Bymaria is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Felix Asriel with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.249 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 831 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 132,985 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

There's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, pet rocks are sold by the pound, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. 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 132,812th in the world and 3rd in Londinium for Most Pro-Market, scoring 36.56 on the Rand Index.
