The People Without Cares of Beatitas is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Not Applicable with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.019 billion Beata hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Not Applicable. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Beata economy, worth 718 trillion Not Applicables a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 178,757 Not Applicables, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?", and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime is totally unknown. Beatitas's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Unisychism.

Beatitas is ranked 1,943rd in the world and 2nd in The United Federations for Best Weather, with 473 Meters Of Sunlight.
