The Confederacy of Brytene is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Bretwalda Cenwulf with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.124 billion Brytons have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lundene. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brytisc economy, worth a remarkable 1,235 trillion Scillings a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 173,472 Scillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, and the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brytene's national animal is the Eohlhund, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Adfyr.

Brytene is ranked 4,622nd in the world and 2nd in New Atlas for Most Cultured, scoring 154 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
