The Kingdom of Brettenwald is a huge, genial nation, ruled by King Thomas IV with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 918 million Brettain are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurinel. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Brettain economy, worth 68.0 trillion marks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,116 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, King Thomas IV has just been declared ruler of Brettenwald in an international press conference, and there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brettenwald's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Brettenwald is ranked 31,420th in the world and 1st in Arasmer for Most Developed, scoring 65.99 on the Human Development Index.
