Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of BrightonBurg is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Kaiser Janos II with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.33 billion BrightonBurgians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Brightonburg City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient BrightonBurgian economy, worth an astonishing 13,773 trillion Gold or Silver Kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 523,110 Gold or Silver Kronor, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,845,212 per year while the poor average 49,448, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, BrightonBurg is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and the nation has declared war on all passing comets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. BrightonBurg's national animal is the Wild Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orange Catholic.

BrightonBurg is ranked 5th in One big Island and 9,954th in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 32 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
