OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Republic of Berlande is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dominic Madde with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.213 billion Berlandeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Simme. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Berlandean economy, worth 594 trillion Simoleons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,007 Simoleons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling, viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, and politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Berlande's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Berlande is ranked 245,009th in the world and 111th in Philippines for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -16 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
