The Empire of BrightonBurg is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Kaiser Janos II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.287 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.

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 Retail.

The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association, manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job, and the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled BrightonBurg with a very polite populace. 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 49th in One big Island and 114,372nd in the world for Best Weather, with -3,946 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
