The People's Republic of Belamyra is a massive, safe nation, notable for its parental licensing program, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.948 billion Belamyrans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yunnan. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Belamyran economy, worth 627 trillion Scales a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,823 Scales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The meaning of life was recently discovered in the patch notes for Version 1.42, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and school uniforms are compulsory. 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 157,630th in the world and 6,571st in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.47 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
