The Craggy Hills of Belmoren is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Wesley Torensson with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.475 billion Belmorenites love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ardmore. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Belmorenian economy, worth 280 trillion kroner a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,590 kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, and primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belmoren's national animal is the Potoo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.
