Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The People's Unified Government of The BranRiech is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Premier Kovapak with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.506 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 enormous, 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 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong The BranRiechian economy, worth a remarkable 1,063 trillion Branriech dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 111,925 Branriech dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, nation-building is the new national pastime, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in The BranRiech, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 7th in The Apartment Block and 9,647th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 88 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
