The Borderlands of Belistien is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Yuri Serbinaski IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 20.781 billion Belistienians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belistien City. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Belistienian economy, worth a remarkable 2,373 trillion Beliens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 114,196 Beliens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belistien's national animal is the Dread Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Belistien is ranked 226,401st in the world and 1,163rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -5.51 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
