The Glorious Dictatorship of The Big Brother is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Big Brother with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.764 billion Citizens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citadel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Citizen economy, worth a remarkable 3,013 trillion offerings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 236,056 offerings, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government spends billions to protect The Big Brother from a disaster that is one in a million, finding half a worm in your apple is an arrestable offense, the nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams, and foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Big Brother's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Cult of the Big Brother.

The Big Brother is ranked 169,030th in the world and 99th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Cultured, scoring 25 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
