The Grand Duchy of Brecon2 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Maja Nordstrand with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 26.306 billion Brecon2ians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amiens. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brecon2ian economy, worth a remarkable 5,181 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 196,953 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The diplomatic corps stinks, shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Brecon2's national animal is the boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Brecon2 is ranked 181,792nd in the world and 104th in European Union for Most Authoritarian, with 316.27 milliStalins.
