OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of Bretony is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor of Bretony with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 15.943 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.

The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, Bretony's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, 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 4th in Osiris and 282nd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 18 on the Hayek Index.
