The Duchy of Brandon is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Brandon with an even hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.933 billion Brandonites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiloran. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Brandonite economy, worth a remarkable 1,597 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 269,187 Euros, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 891,516 per year while the poor average 60,712, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

Sir Brandon's new android secretary is the latest media darling, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, citizens spend millions on microtransactions to feed virtual orphans while actual orphans starve overseas, and many of the poor live from cradle to grave without ever seeing sunlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Brandon's national animal is the Lamb, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism and Mormonism.

Brandon is ranked 56,192nd in the world and 11th in Kingdom of Scotland for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,677.14 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
