The Commonwealth of Bretony is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor of Bretony with an even hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 16.266 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 Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining.

Prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news. 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 24th in Osiris and 595th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 15 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
