The Kingdom of North Breifne is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Féidhlim with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 11.786 billion North Breifneans are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The enormous, moralistic, pro-business government is effectively ruled by the Department of Spirituality, with Social Policy and Healthcare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coláiste na Tríonóide. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.9%.

The powerhouse North Breifnean economy, worth 804 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Gambling, and Trout Farming. Average income is 68,243 dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 361,112 per year while the poor average 6,838, a ratio of 52.8 to 1.

Employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, the comic book series 'King Féidhlim and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. North Breifne's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

North Breifne is ranked 7,626th in the world and 1st in Coalition of Catholic States for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 52.8 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
