The Kingdom of Brototh is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Richard Arxon with an iron fist, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.812 billion Spereidians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wigan. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Spereidian economy, worth 531 trillion Lashans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 189,074 Lashans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

New urban roads are threatening city parks, gambling is outlawed, royal mothers are increasingly sidelined as news crews strain for interviews and photoshoots with "the hot nanny", and the nation has an international reputation for compassion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Brototh's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is the Cult of Godsinia.

Brototh is ranked 174,949th in the world and 278th in Thaecia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -5.2 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
