The Dictatorship of Brotherhood of nod is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by kane with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, fear of technology, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.06 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, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. 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 an astonishing 11,224 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 621,508 tiberium crystals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,385,869 per year while the poor average 11,543, a ratio of 466 to 1.

Every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, the vow 'til death do us part' is often taken as an invitation to murder, sanitary products are sold in brown paper at hairdressers' salons, and the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli. 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 262nd in the world and 13th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 16,124.52 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
