The Kingdom of Brototh is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Richard Arxon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.364 billion Brotothians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wigan. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Brotothian economy, worth a remarkable 1,870 trillion lashans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 254,029 lashans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, applications to enter seminaries spike right before the obligatory fasts, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 210,119th in the world and 299th in Thaecia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -4.95 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
