The United Commonwealth of New Bradenia Ghost is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arno Tyranic with an even hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 8.6 billion New Bradenia Ghostians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Glasgow. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Bradenia Ghostian economy, worth a remarkable 1,366 trillion Bradenian Dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,945 Bradenian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's beloved 'good-natured doormat' is inundated by begging letters, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants, and the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Bradenia Ghost's national animal is the Old Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular State.

New Bradenia Ghost is ranked 253,235th in the world and 9,788th in The East Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -27 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
