Prince Brice

Population3.921 billion


The Lonely Castle of Prince Brice is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.921 billion Amestrians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Prince Bricean economy, worth 27.3 trillion Cenzes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 6,965 Cenzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, surveillance cameras are banned, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Prince Brice's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Prince Brice is ranked 267,967th in the world and 7th in Darkwood for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7.03 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
