The Federal Republic of Independant Britanny is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Erwan Creac'h with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, parental licensing program, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.142 billion Bretons are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nantes. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.
The all-consuming Breton economy, worth 130 trillion Lurs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 114,384 Lurs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 532,643 per year while the poor average 14,732, a ratio of 36.2 to 1.
Travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Independant Britanny flights to avoid the pay lavatories, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, and money always talks but the taboo subject of death just brings silence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Independant Britanny's national animal is the Ermine, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
