The Commonwealth of Brockton-by-the-Sea is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.902 billion Brockies 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 large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chaubunagungamaug. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brockish economy, worth 189 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,723 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passengers often cause a stink on public transport, guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, and academics have a bone to pick with free market entrepreneurs. Crime is totally unknown. Brockton-by-the-Sea's national animal is the Eastern gray squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Brockton-by-the-Sea is ranked 22,989th in the world and 65th in Thaecia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 233.1 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
