The Queen's State of Brackenbirk is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its smutty television and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 26.889 billion Brackenbirkians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The tiny, liberal, pro-business government prioritizes Environment, although Education, Welfare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.4%.
The thriving Brackenbirkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,161 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 43,180 betales, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 181,682 per year while the poor average 6,659, a ratio of 27.3 to 1.
Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Brackenbirk's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
