The Empire of BrightonBurg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Janos II with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.037 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 receive no funds. 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 12,692 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 506,943 Gold or Silver Kronor, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,691,629 per year while the poor average 50,442, a ratio of 53.4 to 1.

Immigrants are required to salute the flag five times a day, bloodthirsty zealots regularly participate in the Friday Night Stoning of Adulterers, university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. BrightonBurg's national animal is the Wild Boar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orange Catholic.

BrightonBurg is ranked 45th in One big Island and 116,288th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -223 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
