The Dictatorship of Brotherhood of nod is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by kane with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, triple-decker prams, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.598 billion Brotherhood of nodians 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 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 aren't funded at all. 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 14,670 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 649,192 tiberium crystals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,524,063 per year while the poor average 32,298, a ratio of 140 to 1.

Panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime is a major problem, 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 35,734th in the world and 739th in the Rejected Realms for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 160.54 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
