The Salt Bearer of Briltar is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Fleau're with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 33.36 billion Briltarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buler. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 87.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Briltarian economy, worth a remarkable 7,427 trillion Liquefied Salt Gases a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 222,650 Liquefied Salt Gases, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 678,087 per year while the poor average 56,739, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

It's usual for grandparents to stay in the family home with their descendants but younger children are often frightened of them, the revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news, no one tells their son "you're the man of the house" any more, and mouldy bread is served as an appetizer in many restaurants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Briltar's national animal is the Salt Abberation, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Crucia.

Briltar is ranked 21,200th in the world and 1st in Continent of Newearthland for Most Patriotic, with 46.03 flags saluted per person per day.
