New Briantown

Population5.344 billion


CurrencyBriantown buck

The Space Pirate Empire of New Briantown is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Brian with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and digital currency. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 5.344 billion New Briantownians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Briantown. The average income tax rate is 64.4%.

The frighteningly efficient New Briantownian economy, worth a remarkable 1,555 trillion Briantown bucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 290,987 Briantown bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Religious education is a new government priority, movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens, garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', and a surprising number of police officers have been arrested for Bear sacrifices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Briantown's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Brianism.

New Briantown is ranked 45,099th in the world and 2,203rd in the South Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,598.21 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
