The Republic of Brandilee is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.517 billion Brandileeans 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, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lief City. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Brandileean economy, worth 286 trillion Pog chips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. Average income is 81,571 Pog chips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

On-duty Air Brandilee flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, escalators are avoided at all costs, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime is totally unknown. Brandilee's national animal is the Dolyak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Brandilee is ranked 10,336th in the world and 518th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,642.21 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
