The Most Serene Kingdom of Zalora-Bravo is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 723 million Bravosi are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abergain. The average income tax rate is 64.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bravosi economy, worth 86.1 trillion 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 119,097 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Weekly religious services often resemble campaign rallies, foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, and groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zalora-Bravo's national animal is the Sea Turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zalora-Bravo is ranked 86,102nd in the world and 1,427th in The East Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 16.7 flags saluted per person per day.
