The Constitutional Monarchy of New Belia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader Harwell with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.123 billion New Belians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Belia City. The average income tax rate is 47.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Belian economy, worth a remarkable 1,609 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,465 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love, barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the New Belia City Natural History Museum, and it's often raining men (hallelujah) in New Belia City. Crime is totally unknown. New Belia's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Belia is ranked 13,875th in the world and 305th in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,088.11 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
