The Marxist-Leninist Wonderland of Brittalia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Viggo Bolle with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.391 billion Brittalians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dante. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brittalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,280 trillion Goldstars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,650 Goldstars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coat closets are being re-branded as bedrooms, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", home renovation projects take decades to complete, and owning a fishing rod can cause you to be subject to military questioning. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brittalia's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Brittalia is ranked 93,109th in the world and 170th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Politically Free, scoring 71.24 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
