The Holy Queendom of Brellach is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Divine Queen Lyta with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 17.23 billion Brellachi 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Spirituality, with Environment also on the agenda, while Healthcare and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheoth. The average income tax rate is 64.1%.

The strong Brellachi economy, worth 722 trillion drakes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration. Average income is 41,950 drakes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Brellachi believe a soft answer turneth away wrath but punitive punishment is much more fun, the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, Divine Queen Lyta's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, and bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination". Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Brellach's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Church of Her Divine Glory.

Brellach is ranked 18,393rd in the world and 90th in Forest for Highest Drug Use, scoring 99.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
