The Refugee Nation of Essu Beti is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Amal Kulkarni with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.329 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 Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tasiltu Al Kissuti. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Betian economy, worth 235 trillion rils a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,491 rils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, there is something rotten in the state of Essu Beti, babies are increasingly seen as a luxury, and truancy levels are on the rise ever since school registers were banned. 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 52,497th in the world and 33rd in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Highest Economic Output, with 235 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
