The Great Congregation of Brethren is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Archdolphop Snow Warslayer with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 3.461 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 97.6%.

The powerhouse Brethren economy, worth 412 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. Average income is an impressive 119,308 tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents dread their examinations more than their children, Thriwich spends billions upgrading public transport, interest in globalism never flags, and student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Seagullball fields. 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 9,433rd in the world and 284th in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 105,326.25 Standard Monetary Units.
