The Commonwealth of Bretony is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor of Bretony with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 15.386 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 Uranium Mining and Information Technology.

All guns must be registered, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, the government is avowedly atheist, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Bretony's national animal is the Falcon, 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 2,924th in Osiris and 111,300th in the world for Best Weather, with -1,001 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
