The Federal Republic of Brakanistan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Elizabeth Fraser with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.593 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krasnov. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brakanistanian economy, worth 795 trillion Brakanistani Mark - BM-s a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,605 Brakanistani Mark - BM-s, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Krasnov for fear of causing a fuss, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, and internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Brakanistanian weed picker are way up. 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 254,857th in the world and 1,030th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -111.77 on the Hayek Index.
