The Federation of Brotherhood for life is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Brother David with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.035 billion Empireians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grasemarria. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Empireian economy, worth a remarkable 4,255 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, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, 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 353,577 Yellow rubbieses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, all marriages are arranged by the government, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence. 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 10,672nd in the world and 3rd in Lezra for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 25,703.25 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
