The Queen's State of Brikama is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.588 billion Brikamen live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.2%.

The very strong Brikaman economy, worth 175 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Gambling, and Trout Farming. Average income is 38,321 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 260,536 per year while the poor average 2,059, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, voting is voluntary, the government is avowedly atheist, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Brikama's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Brikama is ranked 232,217th in the world and 4th in The Southern Ocean for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -3.16 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
