OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of Bretony is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Commonwealth President with an even hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.817 billion 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.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, Forthampton is a police state during international summits, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, and more and more students are taking up a career in medicine. 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 widespread deforestation, its national religion is none, and its currency is the mark sterling.

Bretony is ranked 5th in Osiris and 346th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 22 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
