The Commonwealth of Bromford is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Elias Brocklebank with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 19.254 billion Bromnians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atherey. The average income tax rate is 8.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bromfordian economy, worth a remarkable 3,271 trillion warburtons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 169,923 warburtons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Wheelchair users complain it is nearly impossible for them to cross the road in Atherey, bins outnumber trees in city parks, kids building model rockets in their backyard are grounded by Space Agency Rangers, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime is totally unknown. Bromford's national animal is the osprey, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is cautious agnosticism.

Bromford is ranked 169,159th in the world and 367th in Wintreath for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -30.55 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
