Bryn Rhyddid

Population8.548 billion


CurrencyBryn guilder

The Free Land of Bryn Rhyddid is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.548 billion Bryn Rhyddidians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Environment are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aanlanding. The average income tax rate is 8.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Bryn Rhyddidian economy, worth a remarkable 1,165 trillion Bryn guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 136,369 Bryn guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parking's carefree without parking car fees, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, and government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens". Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bryn Rhyddid's national animal is the cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bryn Rhyddid is ranked 15,506th in the world and 27th in Eurth for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 8,496.95 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
