The Telepathic Humanoids of Beta Zed is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Reittan Grax with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.57 billion Betazoids enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rixx. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Betazoid economy, worth 148 trillion Oskoids a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,615 Oskoids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The newest shade developed by Beta Zed's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, tabloids coo over Reittan Grax's expected child, and genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Beta Zed's national animal is the Pet Vine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Beta Zed is ranked 211,757th in the world and 104th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Most Primitive, scoring -77.73 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
