The Smash Hit Movie Version of Brocklandia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the biggest squirrels you ever saw with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 19.73 billion Brocklandians 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, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkest Surburbia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Brocklandian economy, worth a remarkable 5,920 trillion goobers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 300,084 goobers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,603,487 per year while the poor average 29,461, a ratio of 54.4 to 1.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Brocklandia's national animal is the giant dancing howler monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is --uhm--maybe apathy--or whatever.

Brocklandia is ranked 227,849th in the world and 65th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Most Primitive, scoring -614.43 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
