The Constitutional Monarchy of Bellanda is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 443 million Bellandans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Administration, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.6%.

The very strong Bellandan economy, worth 34.4 trillion Bolands a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 77,599 Bolands, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 229,963 per year while the poor average 20,558, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

There's never a spare chair in the retirement home, Bellandan-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and kissing cousins produce the heartiest babies. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Bellanda's national animal is the Bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bellanda is ranked 173,739th in the world and 67th in The Slide Countries for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 8.57 Effective Tax Rate.
