Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Tows Brorolmat is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Scorpious Filius Augustus with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.808 billion Tows Brorolmatians 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 medium-sized, 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 Aeterna Flamma. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Tows Brorolmatian economy, worth 331 trillion Dharmas 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. 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 183,248 Dharmas, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, skateparks can be found in every city, and Tows Brorolmat's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tows Brorolmat's national animal is the Brorolmat Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zorpiousian.

Tows Brorolmat is ranked 147,414th in the world and 7,362nd in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.11 Weapons Per Person.
