The Democratic Republic of Brelfest is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 341 million Brelfestians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Brelfestian economy, worth 6.03 trillion Brelfestian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 17,675 Brelfestian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Brelfest's national animal is the Coral Goldfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Brelfest is ranked 100,370th in the world and 4,122nd in Osiris for Most Authoritarian, with 647.01 milliStalins.
