The Elected Monarchy of World Trade is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Monarch Elect Vиктор Smith with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 6.429 billion Brussians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Elizabeth. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient World Tradean economy, worth a remarkable 1,746 trillion Crypto-pounds 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, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 271,585 Crypto-pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, Monarch Elect Vиктор Smith's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army, and most foreigners can't name the leader of World Trade. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. World Trade's national animal is the wild Prince Charles, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is atheism.

World Trade is ranked 141,208th in the world and 140th in Thaecia for Most Armed, with 0.29 Weapons Per Person.
