The Kingdom of Brettenia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Joseph Burke with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.028 billion Brits have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Charity. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brettenian economy, worth 321 trillion Royals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 158,684 Royals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government pours millions of Royals into rehabilitation programs annually, the nation's reputation for treachery has left it sidelined on the international stage, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and in distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brettenia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Brettenia is ranked 129,443rd in the world and 6,635th in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.8 Kickbacks Per Hour.
