The Nomadic Peoples of Tyrellian Bridge is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 333 million Tyrellian Briggans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyrell's Bridge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Tyrellian Briggan economy, worth 38.1 trillion tyrells a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 114,390 tyrells, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Tyrellian Bridge's national animal is the Tyrell Pigg, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tyrellian Bridge is ranked 42,566th in the world and 315th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 28.46 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
