The United Commonwealth of New Bradenia Ghost is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Arno Tyranic with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 10.645 billion New Bradenia Ghostians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Bradenia Ghostian economy, worth a remarkable 1,649 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. Average income is an impressive 154,935 Bradenian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

New Bradenia Ghost has been greatly criticised for its isolationist policies, the New Bradenia Ghost Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', large sections of New Bradenia Ghost have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, and "Arno Tyranic got your tongue?" has become a popular idiom. 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 12,322nd in the world and 205th in The East Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 7,653.09 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
