The Sovereign Federation of Baelju is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Hajkal Iljasinovich with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.746 billion Baeljunians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hergevolsk. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Baeljuan economy, worth 366 trillion Krotsvas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,813 Krotsvas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Baelju. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baelju's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Baelju is ranked 143,955th in the world and 5,329th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring 31.78 on the Rand Index.
