The Unified Dominion of Berlana

The Unified Dominion of Berlana is a huge, genial nation, ruled by High Chancellor Hadrian Aurelius IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 951 million Berlanans 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 Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potentia. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Berlanan economy, worth 141 trillion title crowns a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 149,106 title crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Tax rises are attributed to divine will, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, and strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Berlana's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
