Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of BrightonBurg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Janos II with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.532 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, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. 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 13,895 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 523,713 Gold or Silver Kronor, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,848,488 per year while the poor average 49,505, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled BrightonBurg with a very polite populace, 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 54th in One big Island and 126,113th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with -245 Dawkins.
