The Republic of Breheim is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Vilde Gunnhildsdottir with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.607 billion Breheimians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Storvik. The average income tax rate is 37.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Breheimian economy, worth 901 trillion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 118,483 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, and concussed Polar Bearball players cannot remember their lineup position. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Breheim's national animal is the Polar Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is secularism.

Breheim is ranked 35,828th in the world and 2,166th in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 135.09 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
