The Majestic Empire of Branigan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Emperor Vladaxz with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 5.308 billion Braniganians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Blondie. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Braniganian economy, worth a remarkable 1,011 trillion Lauras a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 190,512 Lauras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, and light entertainment isn't dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Branigan's national animal is the Pitbull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Branigan is ranked 17,724th in the world and 21st in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,585.9 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
