The Rogue Nation of Branarlo is a very large, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 156 million Branarloans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with International Aid and Spirituality not funded at all. The average income tax rate is 6.1%.

The very strong Branarloan economy, worth 9.89 trillion Drug Coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 63,397 Drug Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

No one over the age of 35 has the slightest clue what is going on, folk singers have replaced personal injury lawyers in being ridiculed as "ambulance chasers", pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and puppies given out free in marketing promotions are often tossed straight into the trash. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Branarlo's national animal is the Racoon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Branarlo is ranked 150,124th in the world and 21st in RGBN for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -12.25 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
