The Commonwealth of Bretony is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Chancellor of Bretony with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.774 billion, 5.768 billion of whom are zombies, 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.

Citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and guns are banned. 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 7th in Osiris and 417th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 34 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Bretony is currently considering its options.

People: 5,910,287

Zombies: 5,768,237,819

Dead: 10,212,083,038

Survival Rate: 0.04%
