The Kingdom of Bej is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Olegovich with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.201 billion Bejians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beki. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Bejian economy, worth 631 trillion Bejis a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 286,849 Bejis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,151,369 per year while the poor average 11,036, a ratio of 194 to 1.

Billions of Bejis are spent to take high-quality photos of the Bejian Crocodile Nebula, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, and a milk bath costs more than bathing in money. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bej's national animal is the Bejian crocodile, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The church of Borism.

Bej is ranked 178,161st in the world and 42nd in The West Pole for Best Weather, with -429 Meters Of Sunlight.
