The United Commonwealth of New Bradenia Ghost is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Arno Tyranic with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 8.644 billion New Bradenia Ghostians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Glasgow. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Bradenia Ghostian economy, worth a remarkable 1,362 trillion Bradenian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,574 Bradenian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, Arno Tyranic's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and sports fans complain that cricket tests now last an unbearable ten days. 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 Secularism.

New Bradenia Ghost is ranked 7,560th in the world and 144th in The East Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 34,750.14 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
