The Rogue Nation of Belfagoria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Zeqiri Futae with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.677 billion Belfagorians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hole. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Belfagorian economy, worth 183 trillion Stokes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 109,336 Stokes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, Hole spends billions upgrading public transport, citizens have an obligation to remain silent and anything they say may be used against them, and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belfagoria's national animal is the Blue Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Belfagoria is ranked 11,141st in the world and 590th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,294.28 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
