The Empire of BrightonBurg is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Kaiser Janos II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.902 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.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, troops clank into battle wearing antique suits of armour, and Kaiser Janos II is worshipped as a god. 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 39th in One big Island and 110,766th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -37 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
