The Empire of New Belhavia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Aaron III with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 17.016 billion Belhavians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Provisa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient New Belhavian economy, worth a remarkable 3,409 trillion Belhavian Shekels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 200,368 Belhavian Shekels, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 859,273 per year while the poor average 29,905, a ratio of 28.7 to 1.

Denied drugs and entertainment the nation's youth are taking to petty crime to alleviate their boredom, the studies of art and philosophy are banned, employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM, and government spokespeople are working overtime trying to convince concerned citizens that Emperor Aaron III is not a crook. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. New Belhavia's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Judaism.

New Belhavia is ranked 5,122nd in the world and 1st in Pardes for Most Devout, with 3,180.04 Prayers Per Hour.
