Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Unified Government of The BranRiech is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Premier Kovapak with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.749 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, well-organized 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 94.7%.

The thriving The BranRiechian economy, worth a remarkable 1,446 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, extremely 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 123,123 Branriech dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', expats return home to a government devoid of social and environmental agencies, Max Barry is this year's Miss The BranRiech, and The BranRiech's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses. 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 152,987th in the world and 4,740th in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -24.09 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
