OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Colossal United States of Bertavia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, strictly enforced bedtime, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.566 billion Bertavians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Bertavian economy, worth a remarkable 4,659 trillion Bertavian Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 250,960 Bertavian Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,320,685 per year while the poor average 2,641, a ratio of 878 to 1.

Patriotic citizens simply tend to applaud rather than sing the nation's praises, the government is outsourcing itself, government officials are phoning up good-looking celebrities to say they want to breed with them, and disaster victims are viewed with disdain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Bertavia's national animal is the Bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bertavia is ranked 1,381st in the world and 3rd in Anteria for Fattest Citizens, with 52.3 Obesity Rate.
