The Grand Duchy of Bettisia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Rebeckah Wagnerie with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 18.759 billion Bettisians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Healthcare, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veedubbia. The average income tax rate is 26.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bettisian economy, worth a remarkable 3,453 trillion Dorals a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 184,087 Dorals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hundreds of sailors ride the good ship Rebeckah Wagnerie day after day, eminent domain has been abolished, referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process, and teddy bear James Dean (aka "the Rebel Without the Claws") helps convince kids that candy cigarettes are cool. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bettisia's national animal is the Drunk Spotted Vampire Mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of Rich Cordovian Leather.

Bettisia is ranked 1,663rd in the world and 2nd in Atlantis for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 67.98 Whatever.
