The Holy Queendom of Brellach is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Divine Queen Lyta with an even hand, and notable for its lack of airports, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 17.113 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Spirituality, although Environment is also considered important, 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 64.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Brellachi economy, worth 701 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 40,987 drakes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 90,044th in the world and 182nd in Forest for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,065.51 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
