The People's Unified Government of The BranRiech is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Premier Kovapak with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.684 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brangrad. The average income tax rate is 54%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, and prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The BranRiech's national animal is the zombie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Atheism, and its currency is the Branriech dollar.

The BranRiech is ranked 6th in The Apartment Block and 9,670th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 122 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
