The Empire of BrightonBurg is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Kaiser Janos II with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.3 billion 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, pro-business 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.

Sales of fishnet stockings have reached a record high, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in One big Island, and the government is seen to favor Catholics. 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 21st in One big Island and 54,220th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.402 Stalins.
