The Republic of Brotherland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Joan Ragno with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.058 billion Brotherlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brotherland City. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Brotherlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,796 trillion Songs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 154,869 Songs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, the Brotherlandian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, populations of two-headed Cats have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, and rumor has it that Joan Ragno has won three lotteries in a row. Crime is totally unknown. Brotherland's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fratracism.

Brotherland is ranked 1,477th in the world and 43rd in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 10,581.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
