The Free Land of Bryn Rhyddid is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.137 billion Bryn Rhyddidians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Environment is also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aanlanding. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.5%.

The powerhouse Bryn Rhyddidian economy, worth 301 trillion Bryn guilders a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 141,054 Bryn guilders, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 850,139 per year while the poor average 10,526, a ratio of 80.8 to 1.

The comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-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 1,349th in the world and 1st in Eurth for Highest Drug Use, scoring 119.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
