The Empire of Beriwen is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Cordelia Scott with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 13.091 billion Beriwenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siville. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Beriwenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,976 trillion Beriens a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 227,375 Beriens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, and stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beriwen's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheran Christianity.

Beriwen is ranked 224,124th in the world and 732nd in Europeia for Most Primitive, scoring -464.39 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
