The Republic of Bergonnia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Maximus Aquila with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 10.119 billion Bergonnians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bernside. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bergonnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,517 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,978 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many friends and relatives of Maximus Aquila have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bergonnia's national animal is the Bergonnian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bergonnia is ranked 8,839th in the world and 34th in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 90.98 on the Human Development Index.
