King Bradley

Population1.824 billion

The Kingdom of King Bradley is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.824 billion Amestrians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant King Bradleyian economy, worth 29.0 trillion Cenzes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 15,898 Cenzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is paving paradises to put up parking lots. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King Bradley's national animal is the Ardent Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

King Bradley is ranked 144,567th in the world and 1st in Amestris for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 10.5 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
