The State of Breucia is a colossal, pleasant nation, ruled by His Excellency the Seneschal with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ritual sacrifices, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.307 billion Breucians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dfhanor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.3%.

The strong Breucian economy, worth 544 trillion Breucian Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,533 Breucian Kroner, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, a speech a day keeps climate change away, the holiest shrine in Dhooism is on another world, and the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Breucia's national animal is the Barbary Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dhooism.

Breucia is ranked 61,709th in the world and 5th in Western Atlantic for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 4,371.09 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
