The Democratic States of Broquedis is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, smutty television, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic population of 619 million Broquedisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gran Palícia. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Broquedisian economy, worth 69.1 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 111,595 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Broquedis's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Broquedis is ranked 133,796th in the world and 32nd in Niamark for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 136.12 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
