The People's Republic of Belgizka is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 453 million Belgizkans 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 Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Belgizkan economy, worth 15.2 trillion Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales and Information Technology. Average income is 33,553 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, Belgizka successfully hosted the The DankLeft Commune Olympics, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and the wreckages of bombed planes that litter Belgizka are highly popular tourist destinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belgizka's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Belgizka is ranked 78,017th in the world and 28th in The DankLeft Commune for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 88.7 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
