The Great Congregation of Brethren is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Archdolphop Snow Warslayer with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.847 billion Brethren enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thriwich. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Brethren economy, worth 757 trillion tokens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 129,569 tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to Brethren's border, the strong are acquitted and the weak are trampled in trial by a Seagull, atheistic refugees haven't got a prayer of being granted asylum, and diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brethren's national animal is the Seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Dolphinism.

Brethren is ranked 237,804th in the world and 8,879th in The East Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 4.5 insults per minute.
