The Federation of Brotherhood for life is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Brother David with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.355 billion Empireians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grasemarria. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Empireian economy, worth a remarkable 3,591 trillion Yellow rubbieses 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 346,825 Yellow rubbieses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom, diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brotherhood for life's national animal is the Zombie army of Foxes, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Na'Fatu vas chaos.

Brotherhood for life is ranked 45,781st in the world and 10th in Lezra for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3,595.51 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
