The Most Christian Realm of Bresdenn is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by King Brian IV of the Bresdennian Realm with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.246 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 82%, 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.
Atheists are heavily taxed, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and tax rises are attributed to divine will. 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.
