The Most Serene Republic of Bergezia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Doge Carlo Graziani with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.067 billion Bergezians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serenissima. The average income tax rate is 59.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bergezian economy, worth 267 trillion Berges a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 129,421 Berges, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, and the government is spending billions of taxpayer Berges to support "struggling" industries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bergezia's national animal is the Gecko, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bergezia is ranked 167,598th in the world and 3,935th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 81.4 billion Standard Monetary Units.
