The Empire of BrightonBurg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Janos II with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 31.564 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 14,501 trillion Gold or Silver Kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an amazing 459,419 Gold or Silver Kronor, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,039,942 per year while the poor average 64,506, a ratio of 31.6 to 1.

Children are regularly married to each other to secure alliances between families, the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, and entire provinces are populated solely by nuclear missile technicians and military police. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orange Catholic.

BrightonBurg is ranked 168,360th in the world and 49th in One big Island for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 6.29 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
