The Federal Republic of Besmenien, commonly called Besmenien, is a German-speaking country in the world. It is located in the east of Belisaria, bordering Drevstran to the north, a maritime border with Nachtmark to the southwest, and the Periclean Sea to the east and south. The country is a parliamentary democracy. The current President since 2015 is Sebastian Bergmann. The current Prime Minister since 2012 is Theodor Sidemann.

In 1831, the first independent Besmenian state was founded. The state emerged as an amalgamation of various small states, such as the Free Republic of Trissenland, the Principality of Lemberland ,and the Kingdom of Sedakanien. After a civil war from 1910 to 1920, Besmenien was divided under the Heraldstein-Müller contract. While the kingdom continued to exist in the west, the Federal Republic was founded in the east. The relationship between the two states was complicated. On November 5, 1949, the Kingdom merged into the Federal Republic. Thus, the Besmenian division ended after 29 years.

In August 1985 the left extrem party SBAP was responsible for the Kailmeyerputsch. In February 1991 the Assassination of Martin Beiter habend.

Besmenien is a member of the Forum of Nations. The World Postal Union, which is an agency of the Forum of Nations, is located in Laitstadt. Besmenien has one of the strongest economies in the world today and is a wealthy country.

film 

The first silent film from Besmenien appeared in 1897. In 1928 the first Besmenian sound film was released in East Besmenien. At the time of the Besmenian division, propaganda films against East Besmenien and their allies were made in West Besmenien. At that time, many films in East Besmenien dealt with the division and the civil war from the 1910s and their consequences . One of the most important directors after the end of the division was Helmut Rommel (1931-2004). He made around 15 feature films between 1957 and 2004. Many of his films are considered masterpieces of Besmenian film culture today.

Helmut Rommel in 2001

In the 1950s, the main focus in Besmenien was on comedy films. Most of the Besmenian films made in the 1960s were genre works (western, agent, sex films). Harald Fliedermann is considered to be a important Besmenian author writer of the 1970s. He was strongly influenced by the theater, for which he wrote several plays. He often described unfortunate love relationships that failed due to the repressive and prejudiced circumstances. The attempted coup by the SBAP in 1984 brought an end to the spirit of optimism that had previously characterized the 1970s and 1980s. Many directors also wanted to depict social reality in their films and critically question them. The film "Ochsenbein" by Helmut Rommel (a film biography of Karl Ochsenbein), which was released in 1990, is internationally the most successful Besmenian film of all time. With a budget of 250 million BS, it was also the most expensive Besmenian film. Due to Helmut Rommel's Ochsenbein movie, Besmenian films had a international significance in the 1990s and 2000s.
