The Free Land of Bruzzundunga is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Baby Jane Hudson with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, humorless population of 2.781 billion Bruzzundungans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jaguarlandia. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Bruzzundungan economy, worth 538 trillion Cocoa Beans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 193,562 Cocoa Beans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and the working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bruzzundunga's national animal is the Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Non-theism.

Bruzzundunga is ranked 1,966th in the world and 45th in The Communist Bloc for Healthiest Citizens, with 28 bananas ingested per day.
