The Kingdom of Broceliande is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by High King Oberon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 784 million Brocelianders are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Broceliandean economy, worth 24.3 trillion Favors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is 30,964 Favors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Unicorns and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, nobody knows why the caged Unicorn sings, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Broceliande's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Broceliande is ranked 80,178th in the world and 3,986th in Osiris for Lowest Crime Rates, with 65.44 law-abiding acts per hour.
