The Workers' Council Republics of Brezzia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Compagno Presidente with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.045 billion Brezzians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nea Sybaris. The average income tax rate is 12.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brezzian economy, worth a remarkable 1,227 trillion silver piastres a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 203,068 silver piastres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Helium balloons lift the nation's spacecraft towards the heavens, the government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, ad hoc militias patrol the streets in an effort to control rampant crime, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Brezzia's national animal is the white wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dudeism.

Brezzia is ranked 205,325th in the world and 1,086th in The Communist Bloc for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -30 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
