The Voodoo People's Republic of Bruuma is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Papa Unclepear with an iron fist, and renowned for its vat-grown people, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 15.891 billion Bruumans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bayougrad. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Bruuman economy, worth a remarkable 1,997 trillion Rubledolls 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. 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 impressive 125,711 Rubledolls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, child labor has been outlawed, and serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bruuma's national animal is the Rainbow Serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unclepearan Marxist Voodoo.

Bruuma is ranked 206,998th in the world and 8,330th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -26.19 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
