New Briantown

Population9.177 billion


CurrencyBriantown buck

The Space Pirate Empire of New Briantown is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Brian with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.177 billion New Briantownians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt 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 24.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Briantownian economy, worth a remarkable 3,127 trillion Briantown bucks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 340,845 Briantown bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Where there's a will there is usually a password manager, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, and space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across New Briantown. 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 16,458th in the world and 535th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 8,268.45 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
