The Free Land of William Beebe is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 322 million William Beebeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Eden. The average income tax rate is 47.3%.

The very strong William Beebean economy, worth 22.0 trillion Guineas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,288 Guineas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, the weather in New Eden is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', government employees from William Beebe dominate international lumberjack competitions, and many rural villagers have never been more than a day's horse-ride from their birthplace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. William Beebe's national animal is the Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
