Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dictatorship of TheBrassEntente is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Anthage with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.582 billion Ententeans 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petoria. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient TheBrassEntentean economy, worth 443 trillion Derps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,808 Derps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Prudishness is on the way out, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, and more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TheBrassEntente's national animal is the Jaguar, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

TheBrassEntente is ranked 6,294th in the world and 2nd in Nationalistan for Safest, scoring 123.89 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
