The Elected Monarchy of World Trade is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Monarch Elect with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and national health service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.879 billion Brussians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Elizabeth. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient World Tradean economy, worth a remarkable 1,298 trillion Crypto-pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 266,171 Crypto-pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and praying before a battle is a court-martial offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. World Trade's national animal is the wild Prince Charles, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is atheism.

World Trade is ranked 23,383rd in the world and 32nd in Thaecia for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 5,295.25 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
