The Quiet Tranquility of Thousand Branches is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Madam Victoria Raymond with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 2.069 billion Branchians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashas. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Thousand Branchesian economy, worth 140 trillion Petis a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Tourism. 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 67,995 Petis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, voting is voluntary, Thousand Branchesian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and works of historical fiction contain a surprising lack of historical figures. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thousand Branches's national animal is the Bumblebee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unishiss.

Thousand Branches is ranked 250,575th in the world and 468th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -10.25 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
