Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of BrightonBurg is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Kaiser Janos II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.501 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 tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. 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 13,030 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 510,995 Gold or Silver Kronor, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,255,773 per year while the poor average 33,049, a ratio of 98.5 to 1.

Families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up, BrightonBurg has become a gigantic dustbowl filled with tourists and mean desperados, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. 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 1st in One big Island and 72nd in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 10,135.427 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
