The Federal Republic of Brakanistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Mark Henderston with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.552 billion Brakanistanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krasnov. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Brakanistanian economy, worth 413 trillion Brakanistani Mark - BM-s a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,794 Brakanistani Mark - BM-s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

President Mark Henderston's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, and parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brakanistan's national animal is the Black Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic.

Brakanistan is ranked 38,483rd in the world and 439th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 90,794.72 Standard Monetary Units.
