The Holy Kingdom of Bracadun is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Gavin Magnus with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.219 billion Bracadunians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Steelhorn. The average income tax rate is 41.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Bracadunian economy, worth 251 trillion Jewels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 206,502 Jewels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, the government nonchalantly sells old nukes to other countries, toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bracadun's national animal is the Titan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Mysticism.

Bracadun is ranked 224,220th in the world and 126th in Thegye for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 46.16 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
