The Watchful Paternal Ruler of Beltia is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 29.797 billion Beltians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Public Transport, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 31.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Beltian economy, worth a remarkable 1,288 trillion belts a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 43,240 belts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beltia's national animal is the bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Beltia is ranked 145,609th in the world and 40th in Catlandatopia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -8.04 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
