The Corporatocratic Monarchy of Betmet is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.568 billion Betmetians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jenniver Luch. The average income tax rate is 58.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Betmetian economy, worth 577 trillion Betmetian Ridgers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 126,362 Betmetian Ridgers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, farting etiquette is taught in schools, economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, and years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details. Crime is totally unknown. Betmet's national animal is the Betmetian Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Betmet is ranked 41,871st in the world and 20th in Ridgefield for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 58.88 Effective Tax Rate.
