The Free Land of Breat is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 514 million Breatians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poggers. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Breatian economy, worth 37.6 trillion teds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. Average income is 73,081 teds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, the government-run newspapers insist that everything is fine, and ghost regiments exist only on paper. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Breat's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Breat is ranked 203,072nd in the world and 332nd in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Black Market, with 16.7 billion Standard Monetary Units.
