The Constitutional Monarchy of Breethoni is a huge, safe nation, notable for its smutty television, public floggings, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 526 million Breethonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bree. The average income tax rate is 66.7%.

The all-consuming Breethonian economy, worth 57.9 trillion Crown Denaris a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,023 Crown Denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Kids only know what plants are because they've seen them on the television, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and jaywalking is punishable by public flogging. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Breethoni's national animal is the Starling, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Breethoni is ranked 35,780th in the world and 106th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Developed, scoring 63.33 on the Human Development Index.
