The Commonwealth of Bromford is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Elias Brocklebank with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 19.797 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, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atherey. The average income tax rate is 14.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bromfordian economy, worth a remarkable 3,379 trillion warburtons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,697 warburtons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, the prevalence of circular logic frequently renders parliamentary observers dizzy, anti-riot police are dispatched whenever two elderly ladies gather to complain that prices have increased, and it is typical to be greeted by a string of curse words in Bromfordian restaurants. 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 35,224th in the world and 69th in Wintreath for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 75.22 Workforce Participation Rate.
