The People's Unified Government of The BranRiech is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Premier Kovapak with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.378 billion The BranRiechians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brangrad. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong The BranRiechian economy, worth 943 trillion Branriech dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,607 Branriech dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The BranRiech's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, much of The BranRiech's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The BranRiech's national animal is the zombie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.
The BranRiech is ranked 50th in The Apartment Block and 109,163rd in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -650.65 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
