The Beauty Land of Bilsa is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bolbon with an iron fist, and renowned for its fear of technology, feral children, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.32 billion Bists are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Environment, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ccims. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bist economy, worth a remarkable 1,458 trillion Bists a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 141,322 Bists, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials are phoning up good-looking celebrities to say they want to breed with them, kidnapping has become the latest get-rich-quick scheme, people forget to eat because they are too busy singing Bolbon's praises, and a plague of zealots has been unleashed on the streets of Ccims. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bilsa's national animal is the Bubu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sun.

Bilsa is ranked 245,409th in the world and 478th in Forest for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -29.09 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
