The Nation of Beandogs is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.354 billion Beandogsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beandogs City. The average income tax rate is 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Beandogsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,650 trillion Seeds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,002 Seeds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, and weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beandogs's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Beandogs is ranked 92,033rd in the world and 35th in Antarctica for Most Influential, scoring 303 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
