Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population1.947 billion



The People's Republic of Belamyra is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its daily referendums, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate population of 1.947 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yunnan. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belamyran economy, worth 234 trillion Scales a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,613 Scales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", and the nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands. 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 625th in the world and 433rd in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 191 Valid Endorsements.
