The Dictatorship of Brotherhood of nod is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by kane with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.103 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, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, 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 12,754 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 634,463 tiberium crystals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,603,645 per year while the poor average 27,567, a ratio of 167 to 1.

Cities are engulfed by smog, employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and movie references are legally admissible in court. 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 276th in the world and 13th in the Rejected Realms for Most Primitive, scoring 402.71 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
