The Dictatorship of Brotherhood of nod is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by kane with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.536 billion Brotherhood of nodians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of sarajevo. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Brotherhood of nodian economy, worth an astonishing 11,533 trillion tiberium crystals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 622,204 tiberium crystals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,491,491 per year while the poor average 10,112, a ratio of 543 to 1.

The current TV ratings hit is "Keeping Up With The Brotherhood Of Nodians", women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft, war criminals are given full state funerals, and the nation gives peace a chance - usually one in a million. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Brotherhood of nod's national animal is the veinhols, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is order of kane.

Brotherhood of nod is ranked 226,358th in the world and 6,388th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -41.35 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
