The Commonwealth of Bretony is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor of Bretony with an even hand, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 15.958 billion Bretons 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Forthampton. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Uranium Mining.

Citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and high food prices have reduced the national diet to staple foods and water. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Bretony's national animal is the Mockingjay, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is none, and its currency is the mark sterling.

Bretony is ranked 19th in Osiris and 572nd in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 16 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
