The Republic of Belmallow is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Francis O'Riley with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.218 billion Belmallowians 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 Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paulsberg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.8%.

The all-consuming Belmallowian economy, worth 200 trillion Rels a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,444 Rels, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 476,437 per year while the poor average 9,149, a ratio of 52.1 to 1.

Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, visions of giant pink Dogs are a common side effect after Belmallowians eat their meals, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Belmallow's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Belmallow is ranked 26,607th in the world and 1,424th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 77.61 on the Human Development Index.
