The Holy Red Zombie Land of Brokemia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Markopsis Banfeld with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, otherworldly petting zoo, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.893 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brokenstar. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brokemian economy, worth a remarkable 4,093 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, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 294,611 Waffles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The stratosphere is full of "silent but deadly" attacks from Markopsis Banfeld's rear echelons, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, the nation's museums are real penny-pinchers, and Brokemia isn't what it used to be. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 7,576th in the world and 2nd in Ridgefield for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 458.44 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
