The Majestic Fascist Empire of Old Beringia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by God Empress Alicia Esmeraude II with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 19.635 billion Beringians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emerald City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Beringian economy, worth a remarkable 2,167 trillion Duxes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 110,405 Duxes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 362,066 per year while the poor average 25,267, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, and government popup ads are springing up like weeds. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Old Beringia's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Old Beringia is ranked 146,687th in the world and 4th in Global Powers for Most Income Equality, scoring 6.98 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
