The Intergalactic Alliance of Betelgeuse Alliance is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Roger Aydin with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.973 billion Betelgeusians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Betelgeuse City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Betelgeuse Alliancean economy, worth 299 trillion Betels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 151,722 Betels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 451,120 per year while the poor average 40,006, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

Companies are turning to trained YEETS for their most menial jobs, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, Michelin-star chefs are being called on to prepare menus for six-year-olds, and the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Betelgeuse Alliance's national animal is the YEET, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Betelgeuse Alliance is ranked 22,032nd in the world and 8th in RGBN for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,846.1 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
