|Leader||King Kyle II|
The United Kingdom of Brutland and Norden is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Kyle II with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 23.923 billion Nord-Brutlandese love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Defense, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingsville. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Nord-Brutlandese economy, worth a remarkable 1,354 trillion livroes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,631 livroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
The travel industry is booming as pregnant women book tickets for "weekend trips" overseas, bris parties are all the rage, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brutland and Norden's national animal is the Brute cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
