The Refugee Nation of Essu Beti is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Amal Kulkarni with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.39 billion Betians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tasiltu Al Kissuti. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Betian economy, worth 182 trillion rils a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,923 rils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

President Amal Kulkarni is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, out-of-work basketball players loom over the unemployment line, cities are engulfed by smog, and the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Essu Beti's national animal is the avialan, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Beuwan.

Essu Beti is ranked 167,433rd in the world and 92nd in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -19.52 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
