The Federal Republic of Independant Britanny is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its aversion to nipples, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 766 million 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, 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 49.0%.
The all-consuming Breton economy, worth 88.5 trillion Lurs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 115,583 Lurs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 360,209 per year while the poor average 28,496, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.
Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, retail staff are trained to take both inside leg measurements and the lives of their enemies, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Independant Britanny's national animal is the Ermine, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
