“Be Strong, Be Noticed, Be Respected”

Regional Influence: Minnow
The United Kingdom of BrownLands is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Brown with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.99 billion BrownLandsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brunlyn. The average income tax rate is 89%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.
Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, cheating spouses are required to undergo job training, and renewable energy projects have ground to a halt. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BrownLands's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Pound.
