The Unspecified Civilisation of Bestburg is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its smutty television, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.653 billion Bestburgians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pug City. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bestburgian economy, worth a remarkable 1,097 trillion Bestbucks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 143,419 Bestbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, taxpayer-funded government ads are promoting Brancaland as a premier filming location, gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bestburg's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bestburg is ranked 28,570th in the world and 159th in Forest for Lowest Crime Rates, with 75.83 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
