The Empire of Besancia is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 471 million Besancians 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.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sakobe. The average income tax rate is 66.2%.

The thriving Besancian economy, worth 41.8 trillion Roenars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,843 Roenars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The weather in Sakobe is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', builders across Besancia are blocked up with orders for new public loos, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Besancia Blood Tithe, and a degree in Leader Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Besancia's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Besancia is ranked 39,893rd in the world and 110th in Thaecia for Highest Average Incomes, with 88,843.26 Standard Monetary Units.
