The Empire of Braghz is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Romberg DeMoza with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.382 billion Braghzians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Borealux. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Braghzian economy, worth 330 trillion Bargs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 138,586 Bargs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 546,451 per year while the poor average 23,825, a ratio of 22.9 to 1.

Children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, the citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, and the freedom to be free is always just out of reach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Braghz's national animal is the Braghzlan Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Abraham's Religion.

Braghz is ranked 17,389th in the world and 908th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.36 Years.
