The Empire of BrightonBurg is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Kaiser Janos II with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.233 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, moralistic, 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.

Citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors. 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 47th in One big Island and 114,446th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -906 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
