Brug Empire

Population26 million


The Empire of Brug Empire is a small, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 26 million Brug Empireans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The very strong Brug Empirean economy, worth 1.93 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 74,333 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 271,743 per year while the poor average 14,422, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Gigantic new prisons are springing up all over the nation, the education system has gotten a recent boost in spending, bins outnumber trees in city parks, and the minority party is vilified for everything from fires to earthquakes. Crime is moderate. Brug Empire's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Brug Empire is ranked 123,306th in the world and 3rd in Brugberg for Nudest, with 85.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
