The Empire of BrightonBurg is a colossal, economically powerful 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 5.911 billion, 5.87 billion of whom are zombies, BrightonBurgians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 Retail.

Programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, and military spending recently hit a new high. 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 1st in One big Island and 87th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 53 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

BrightonBurg is currently researching a cure.
