The Grand Duchy of Brecon2 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Maja Nordstrand with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 27.262 billion Brecon2ians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amiens. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brecon2ian economy, worth a remarkable 5,369 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 196,976 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint, religious education is a new government priority, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and there's some really clean windows in Brecon2ian houses. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Brecon2's national animal is the boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Brecon2 is ranked 12,095th in the world and 20th in European Union for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,985.8 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
