Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of BrightonBurg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Janos II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, parental licensing program, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.927 billion BrightonBurgians 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Brightonburg City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient BrightonBurgian economy, worth an astonishing 14,879 trillion Gold or Silver Kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 497,179 Gold or Silver Kronor, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,410,242 per year while the poor average 59,364, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.

The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, all alcohol is banned, and hundreds of teenagers die every year at the BrightonBurgian Hungry Games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. BrightonBurg's national animal is the Wild Boar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orange Catholic.

BrightonBurg is ranked 95,303rd in the world and 43rd in One big Island for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 547.88 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
