The Holy Red Zombie Land of Brokemia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Markopsis Banfeld with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.046 billion Brokemians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brokenstar. The average income tax rate is 80.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Brokemian economy, worth a remarkable 1,967 trillion Waffles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 279,246 Waffles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, ghost regiments exist only on paper, national chefs believe that you can eat anything so long as you deep fry it first, and home renovation shows are increasingly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brokemia's national animal is the Kitty, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Kittien.

Brokemia is ranked 161,177th in the world and 58th in Ridgefield for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -49 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
