The Collective Republic of Beatrixia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Comrade Beatrice with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 4.414 billion Beatrixians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tereshkova. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Beatrixian economy, worth a remarkable 1,038 trillion Beatrix Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 235,239 Beatrix Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, the blood on the hands of Comrade Beatrice may not be metaphorical, all smart devices are under the control of the all-seeing AI, and small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Beatrixian sovereign territory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beatrixia's national animal is the Beatrixian Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Episcopal Church of Beatrixia.

Beatrixia is ranked 192,873rd in the world and 7,468th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -87.22 on the Rand Index.
