Population3.762 billion



The People's Republic of Belamyra is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.762 billion Belamyrans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yunnan. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belamyran economy, worth 486 trillion Scales a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,405 Scales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Basic multiplication is all you need to know to have a child, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Belamyrans any less frightened, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, and frat-house partying has become the national pastime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belamyra's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Belamyra is ranked 202,269th in the world and 8,873rd in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.59 Crimes Per Hour.
