Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of BrightonBurg is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Kaiser Janos II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.946 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. 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 14,172 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 507,148 Gold or Silver Kronor, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,400,583 per year while the poor average 63,358, a ratio of 37.9 to 1.

Genetic researchers have been expelled, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, and concussed Wild Boarball players cannot remember their lineup position. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. BrightonBurg's national animal is the Wild Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orange Catholic.

BrightonBurg is ranked 1,651st in the world and 2nd in One big Island for Highest Drug Use, scoring 504 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
