The Free State of Befreitland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by people with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.688 billion Befreitlans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fremont. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Befreit economy, worth 542 trillion monetary units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 147,181 monetary units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government props up questionable pizza establishments in the name of health, terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown. Befreitland's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Befreitland is ranked 5,618th in the world and 12th in Sonindia for Safest, scoring 126.55 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
