The United Socialist States of Berlania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Kristof Braxton with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 13.055 billion Berlanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Warchest. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The very strong Berlanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,141 trillion Berloes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 87,427 Berloes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Berlania's national animal is the Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Berlania is ranked 4,328th in the world and 1st in The Intercontinental Socialist Union for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 15,124.65 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
