The Free Land of William Beebe is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Barry Commoner with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.867 billion William Beebeans 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Euell Gibbons City. The average income tax rate is 51.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming William Beebean economy, worth 171 trillion Guineas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,748 Guineas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Violetist maidens who fall for an outsider must leave their violet light districts in shame, visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, and foreign despots proudly bandstand on William Beebean airwaves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. William Beebe's national animal is the Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Environmentalism.

William Beebe is ranked 27,943rd in the world and 1st in Save Our Planet for Most Secular, with 39.75 Atheism Rate.
