The Commonwealth of New Bradenia Ghost is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by John Cleveland with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, compulsory gun ownership, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 2.008 billion New Bradenia Ghostians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grigorna. The average income tax rate is 57.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Bradenia Ghostian economy, worth 261 trillion Ghostian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 130,188 Ghostian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

"Mad Max: Returning Again to Barrydrome" is this year's unexpected summer blockbuster, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, newlywed misogynists complain about their wives keeping their maiden names, and gun ownership is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Bradenia Ghost's national animal is the Black hounds, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ghost Protestant.

New Bradenia Ghost is ranked 126,919th in the world and 4,433rd in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 31.9 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
