The Federal Republic of Brakanistan is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Elizabeth Fraser with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.229 billion Brakanistanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krasnov. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brakanistanian economy, worth 551 trillion Brakanistani Mark - BM-s a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,581 Brakanistani Mark - BM-s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Krasnov for fear of causing a fuss, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, and internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Brakanistanian weed picker are way up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brakanistan's national animal is the Black Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic.

Brakanistan is ranked 15,082nd in the world and 221st in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 86.68 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
