The Empire of BrightonBurg is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Kaiser Janos II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.632 billion BrightonBurgians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt individuals devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Equality and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Brightonburg City. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing.

Shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over BrightonBurg, petitions to the government are being used to insulate politicians' office walls, and citizens must pay to enjoy BrightonBurg's pristine beaches. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. BrightonBurg's national animal is the Wild Boar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Orange Catholic, and its currency is the Gold or Silver Krona.

BrightonBurg is ranked 35th in One big Island and 121,479th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -225 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
