The Commonwealth of Bromford is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Elias Brocklebank with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 17.685 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atherey. The average income tax rate is 7.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bromfordian economy, worth a remarkable 2,909 trillion warburtons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 164,502 warburtons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, and crackheads chase drug-loaded drones in hopes of a lucky drop. 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 10,984th in the world and 25th in Wintreath for Safest, scoring 118.04 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
