The Empire of Besancia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Alexander with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.137 billion 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 enormous 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 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Besancian economy, worth 261 trillion Roenars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,153 Roenars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 9,227th in the world and 28th in Thaecia for Most Developed, scoring 90.75 on the Human Development Index.
