The Kingdom of Brasland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Georg IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 29.978 billion Braslanders 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Markund. The average income tax rate is 29.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Braslander economy, worth a remarkable 4,685 trillion schilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 156,284 schilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

International trade is a sticky issue, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, ample hospital parking is half-filled by the luxury cars of hospital managers, and most ambassadors from Brasland retire only a few years after being appointed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brasland's national animal is the white eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Brasland is ranked 38,529th in the world and 6th in Western Atlantic for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,564.65 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
