The Great Congregation of Brethren is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Archdolphop Snow Warslayer with an even hand, and notable for its lack of airports, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 3.014 billion Brethren are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thriwich. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The powerhouse Brethren economy, worth 361 trillion tokens 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 significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 119,884 tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, builders across Brethren are blocked up with orders for new public loos, with great power generation comes great responsibility, and standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brethren's national animal is the Seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Dolphinism.

Brethren is ranked 22,287th in the world and 605th in The East Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 119,884.92 Standard Monetary Units.
