The Most Serene Kingdom of Zalora-Bravo is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Malcolm II with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 936 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 63.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bravosi economy, worth 116 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, Beef-Based Agriculture, and 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 an impressive 124,380 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

People caught mistreating Zalora-Bravo's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain, elected officials who disagree with King Malcolm II have a lot of accidents, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. 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 26,893rd in the world and 470th in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 1,947.61 prayers per hour.
