The Dictatorship of Brittany the Great is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sheldon Cooper with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.924 billion Brittany the Greatians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alderaan. The average income tax rate is 82%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brittany the Great's national animal is the Otter, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is christianity, and its currency is the dollar.
