The Principality of Bessarabia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 19.016 billion Bessarabians 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 large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 50.8%.

The strong Bessarabian economy, worth 943 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 49,633 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

School uniforms are compulsory, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Bessarabia Blood Tithe, and the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Bessarabia with a very polite populace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bessarabia's national animal is the ox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bessarabia is ranked 83,806th in the world and 9th in NationStates World Regions for Most Devout, with 239.44 Prayers Per Hour.
