The People's Republic of Billexskan is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Ollutu Hezzit with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 844 million Billexskanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thrashthrust. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Billexskanian economy, worth 53.2 trillion Blaps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,073 Blaps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, 'Let's Get It On' has jumped to #1 on the billboard charts, whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Billexskanian Embarrassments, and contestants on Billexskan's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Billexskan's national animal is the Carp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Billexskan is ranked 30,130th in the world and 8th in The Grand Imperial Alliance for Most Developed, scoring 66.87 on the Human Development Index.
