The Dictatorship of Brotherhood of nod is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by kane with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, enslaved workforce, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.574 billion Brotherhood of nodians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of sarajevo. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Brotherhood of nodian economy, worth a remarkable 9,406 trillion tiberium crystals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 603,981 tiberium crystals, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,705,783 per year while the poor average 83,468, a ratio of 32.4 to 1.

Politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, legitimate job descriptions now include "smiling and waving", former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, and colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Brotherhood of nod's national animal is the veinhols, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is order of kane.

Brotherhood of nod is ranked 170,974th in the world and 7,838th in the Rejected Realms for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 0.89 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
