The Holy Empire of Brettenwald is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Thomas I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.928 billion 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, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurinel. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brettani economy, worth 320 trillion crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,328 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and the writing style of religious hymns often changes mid-stanza. 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, and its national religion is The Church of the Seven Gods.

Brettenwald is ranked 195,492nd in the world and 6,777th in Osiris for Nudest, with 42.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
