Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Unified Government of The BranRiech is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Premier Kovapak with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.059 billion BranRiechians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brangrad. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The all-consuming BranRiechian economy, worth a remarkable 1,797 trillion Bran-notes 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 a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. 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 impressive 137,661 Bran-notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, many aides in Premier Kovapak's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The BranRiech's national animal is the Zombie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

The BranRiech is ranked 178,037th in the world and 5,495th in Osiris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -29.53 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
