Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Kingdoms of Brian Boruma is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King Brian Boru with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 26.053 billion Brian Borumen are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The large, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boru. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.6%.

The strong Brian Boruman economy, worth a remarkable 1,781 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is 68,380 pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 312,799 per year while the poor average 9,100, a ratio of 34.4 to 1.

Cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, conspiracy theorists allege Boru's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Brian Boruma's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Brian Boruma is ranked 5,649th in the world and 6th in Free States of Gaia for Most Devout, with 2,575.6 Prayers Per Hour.
