The Most Christian Realm of Bresdenn is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by King Brian IV of the Bresdennian Realm with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.759 billion Bresdennians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Corlo. The average income tax rate is 84%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, tax rises are attributed to divine will, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and pro-democracy regime change has been avoided. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bresdenn's national animal is the Bresdennian Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is The Holy Bresdennian Baptist Church, and its currency is the Bresdennian Bill.

Bresdenn is ranked 187th in 10000 Islands and 16,330th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 86 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
