The Golden Holy Lucky of Bestburg is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.413 billion Bestburgians 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 Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pug City. The average income tax rate is 48.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bestburgian economy, worth 899 trillion Bestbucks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,328 Bestbucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, the name of the "Butcher of Bigtopia" adorns shirts across Bestburg, and it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bestburg's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bestburg is ranked 218,759th in the world and 370th in Forest for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -12 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
