The People's Unified Government of The BranRiech is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Kovapak with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.657 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 96.2%.
The thriving The BranRiechian economy, worth a remarkable 1,330 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 124,887 Branriech dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. 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.
